DRIBE: Hydrogen and sponge iron
The ArcelorMittal steel company Bremen wants to reduce its carbon footprint at its Bremen site, initially by feeding natural gas and later hydrogen into the blast furnace. In addition, the installation of electrolysis capacities in Bremen will contribute to climate-neutral hydrogen production. Within the scope of the DRIBE project, ArcelorMittal wants to produce green sponge iron (DRI) in a new direct reduction plant which is then to be processed into steel in a climate-neutral way in a planned electric arc furnace. The DRI plant in Bremen will also initially supply the Eisenhüttenstadt site.
