ArcelorMittal and John Cockerill partner to build iron electrolysis plant

In 2027, the anticipated launch year, ArcelorMittal, the prominent steel company, and John Cockerill, a leading group in steel processing facilities and electrolysers development, reveal their collaborative endeavor to build the inaugural large-scale, low-temperature iron electrolysis plant, known as Volteron™.

 ArcelorMittal and John Cockerill partner to build iron electrolysis plant

ArcelorMittal and John Cockerill are partnering to build the world's first industrial-scale low temperature, iron electrolysis plant, called Volteron™. The plant aims to produce 40,000 to 80,000 tonnes of iron plates annually initially, with plans to increase capacity to 300,000 to 1 million tonnes later.

The project, previously known as SIDERWIN, has received funding from the EU's Horizon 2020 program. The Volteron™ process uses carbon-free, cold direct electrolysis to extract iron from iron ore. The resulting iron plates are further processed into steel.

ArcelorMittal aims to be the first to produce steel at scale using this low temperature electrolysis process, with the potential to revolutionize steelmaking by eliminating carbon emissions.

In collaboration with ArcelorMittal, John Cockerill Industry, a leading technology company in steelmaking engineering, is proud to develop Volteron™, a highly efficient technology for CO2-free steel production. This partnership aims to address global warming and revolutionize the steel industry.

ArcelorMittal is also exploring two other decarbonization pathways, namely Smart Carbon and Innovative-DRI, to achieve net zero steelmaking. Smart Carbon involves clean energy sources and carbon capture, while Innovative-DRI utilizes hydrogen as a replacement for fossil fuels in steel production.
