Rockwell Automation Helps Turn Steel Plant Emissions into Ethanol
Rockwell Automation’s expertise in digital transformation is helping more companies improve and grow business by incorporating innovative sustainability practices. One example is Rockwell Automation’s work with LanzaTech, a company dedicated to recycling carbon emissions into safe, sustainable and marketable products. LanzaTech used Rockwell’s digital technologies to help global steel producer ArcelorMittal convert carbon from its Belgium steel plants into ethanol. As a result, what was previously a harmful by-product of the steel-making process has created a new commodity that can be used as aviation fuel, building blocks for plastics, and synthetic fibers for textile or CarbonSmart packaging.
Thanks to advancements in technology and digitalization, more industrial executives are looking to apply sustainable processes to their existing operations and identify new areas of business opportunity.
