Ontario government considers 'green steel' as as a way to cut carbon emissions
Ontario's steel industry is aiming for a dramatic reduction in its greenhouse gas emissions.
This article is related to Canada’s energy and chemicals sectors. Alfa Laval’s heat transfer units and wastewater separators are used to reduce water and carbon footprints for heavy process operations across Canada.
“…The three biggest industrial emitters of CO2 in Ontario are all steel plants. Steel production alone accounts for more than 40 per cent of all industrial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the province, more than the refinery, forestry, mining and chemical sectors combined.
But a push is now on — funded in part by nearly $2 billion from provincial and federal taxpayers — to convert Ontario's steel plants to using lower-carbon sources of energy…
…The projects will reduce the two steel plants' combined annual CO2 emissions by as much as six megatonnes (MT). Ontario needs to reduce its total annual emissions by about 18 MT from current levels to meet the government's target for 2030 under the Paris Accord…”
