GREENSTEEL- Green Steel for Europe
Program: Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS)
Objective: project supports the EU towards achieving the 2030 climate and energy targets and the 2050 long-term strategy for a climate neutral Europe, with effective solutions for clean steelmaking.
The project aims to develop a technology roadmap and define mid- and long-term pathways for the decarbonisation of the steel industry; analyse funding options; assess the economic, social, environmental and industrial leadership impacts of EU policy options; and ensure the dissemination of results and stakeholder engagement. Through its innovative approach consisting of the combined assessment of promising technologies, industrial transformation scenarios, and policy options and impacts, Green Steel for Europe will effectively contribute to the sustainable decarbonisation of the steel industry.
Ultimately, the project will help position the EU as a leading provider of low-carbon products, services and advanced technologies in steelmaking, and support the green transition and fight against climate change on a global scale.
