Scania Counting on Fossil Free Steel Project H2GS
Swedish commercial vehicles manufacturer Scania is gearing up in its journey towards completely emission free products after recent decision to invest in and enter into a partnership with the company H2 Green Steel. At this completely new steel plant in Boden, in northern Sweden, carbon dioxide emissions per tonne of steel produced can be reduced by 95% thanks to a new production method and the use of hydrogen gas produced from electricity from hydropower and wind power.
H2GS is built on the experience and lessons learned from the establishment of battery manufacturer Northvolt. The business model is based on a close partnership with strategic customers, including a deep collaboration on product development, process technology, recycling strategies and logistics.
H2GS plans to start production at the new steel plant in 2024. Production in Boden will comprise around 90% of the various types of steel and qualities that Scania demands.
