Low Carbon Steelmaking (ULCOS)

Tata Steel is committed to investing in breakthrough technology to enhance the sustainable performance of our products and processes.

In 2010, as a part of the ULCOS project, we built a €20 million HIsarna pilot plant at our IJmuiden steelworks in the Netherlands. HIsarna is a revolutionary cyclone converter-based iron-making process, directly converting iron ore and coal into iron, without any pre-treatment of the ore and coal.

The new technology could reduce CO2 emissions by 20% compared to conventional iron making. In combination with carbon capture and storage techniques, CO2 reductions of up to 70% should be possible.
