A Powerful Hit Required to Decarbonize Steel Sector


    In an increasingly carbon-constrained world, solar energy technologies represent one of the least carbon-intensive means of electricity generation. With a word of honour, Solidus Techno Power Pvt ltd has been working dynamically for the Steel Sector for the last 3 years, in line with its vision of capturing carbon footprints. As Stated by Mr Harvinder Singh (Director – Solidus) “There is nothing that alerts the world more than action”.As we know the Iron and steel industry is one of the most energy-intensive and largest contributing industries to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Steel production is a significant part of global CO2 emissions. It is estimated that steel product is responsible for 7.2% of all CO2 emissions according to Carbon Brief. In 2019, 1875 million tons of steel were produced. This means that at least 3375 million tons of CO2 were produced. Coal-fired power plants emit 1.1GigaTon of CO2 into the sky every year.


    Global Steel emissions among all other sectors:

    • Non-ferrous metals 0.7%
    • Machinery 0.5%
    • Food and tobacco 1.0%
    • Paper, pulp & printing 0.6%
    • Chemical & petrochemical (energy) 3.6%
    • Other industry 10.6%

    The International Energy Agency estimates that direct CO2 emissions due to crude steel production is approximately 1.4 tons CO2 per ton of steel produced. Recycling Today claims the numbers are slightly higher, roughly 1.85 metric tons of CO2 per ton of steel. Coal accounted for over 40% of the overall growth in global CO2 emissions in 2021. Coal emissions now stand at an all-time high of 15.3 GTon, surpassing their previous peak (seen in 2014) by almost 200 MTon.
    The steel industry in India is among the most important industries in the country. In 2019, India became the second-largest steel producer in the world and now is the time to decarbonize the Steel Sector with a strong punch.
