Japanese steelmaker Kobe Steel Ltd aims to cut its CO2 emissions from its production process by 30-40% by 2030 from 2013 levels in concert with a global push toward decarbonisation. Kobe Steel plans to cut CO2 emissions from blast furnaces by using a new method combining its operation technology and the direct reduction iron technology of its US unit Midrex Technologies Inc. It also aims to develop a hydrogen reduction iron making method and consider using electric furnaces.

The 2030 target does not include its power generation operation, but the company aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 including the power generation business. It plans to use cleaner fuels such as ammonia at its coal-fired power plants.
