This post is the third in the series. This series is about the metals subsector, and more specifically this post, is about the Iron and Steel Mills and Ferroalloy Manufacturing Industry Group.

One reason that I am writing this is that, in an earlier post I said: “I believe that hydrogen will have a strong role to play in our path to a greenhouse-gas (GHG) free future.”

The day after I finalized the above wording I was reading an issue of Time, and came across a pilot plant that was recently completed in the EU that made iron without greenhouse gases. I will describe the plant in this post, but guess what it used to reduce the iron ore to iron. Yep, hydrogen.
