Voestalpine to build carbon capture plant in Linz

Voestalpine has built a carbon capture pilot plant at its steel mill in Linz, Austria.

Voestalpine to build carbon capture plant in Linz

Using an amine-based process, the plant separates carbon dioxide from the flue gases emitted during iron production. The captured CO2 is filled into large industrial gas bottles and delivered to an Austrian energy storage company that is researching new ways to reuse it in steel production, says the plant's founder.

The plant was ordered by the K1-MET metallurgical competence center. This is a research organization that works with national and international partners such as voestalpine to address topics such as energy efficiency, circular economy and climate-neutral metal production.

This plant was built in addition to voestalpine's other initiatives aimed at reducing emissions by using directly reduced iron and hydrogen.
