Japanese Steel Industry on Carbon Neutral 2050 Path

The Japan Iron and Steel Federation have recently formulated the Basic Policy of the Japanese Steel Industry for Japan's 2050 Carbon Neutral.


The Japan Iron and Steel Federation have recently formulated the Basic Policy of the Japanese Steel Industry for Japan's 2050 Carbon Neutral.

(1) JISF supports and contributes to Japan's ambitious policy of 2050 carbon neutrality. To that end, the Japanese steel industry will

Boldly take on the challenge of achieving zero carbon steel.

Contribute to technology and products

Contribute to the steel industry's own production process.

(2) The realization of zero carbon steel cannot be expected to reach practical use in a straight line

Because it is a high challenge of dollars, JISF is currently promoting COURSE 50 and Ferro Cork

CO2 reduction in blast furnaces using gas, etc. + CCUS and even hydrogen reduction iron making

In addition to the challenge of developing ultra-innovative technology, expanding scrap use, unused waste heat such as medium and low temperatures, and buying

JISF will promote it in a double track by combining all means

.

(3) Super innovative technology development

The hydrogen reduction ratio was increased to decarbonize the steelmaking process and realize zero carbon steel

Under the blast furnace method, advanced technological development such as CCUS

Treat the inevitable CO2 at a high cost, or do not generate CO2

There is no solution other than hydrogen reduction steelmaking. In particular, hydrogen reduction steelmaking is a blast furnace method that human beings have reached over thousands of years since recorded history. Is a completely different steelmaking process, a high ha that stands against humankind who has not yet formed a figure

In addition, at the implementation stage, capital costs due to a large amount of capital investment due to the replacement of the current process. And there are operational costs, but these additional costs are solely due to decarbonisation.

(4) The following are indispensable as external conditions for aiming for zero carbon steel.

Large scale, inexpensive and stable supply of zero-emission hydrogen and zero emission power

Economically rational his CCUS R & D and social implementation
