CCS Project

Steelanol

Steelanol project aims to convert carbon-containing gas from blast furnaces, by using a novel microbial gas conversion system, into sustainable & advanced bio-ethanol for use in the transport sector. Commissioning and first production are expected in 2022, with a production of 80 million liters of bioethanol annually.
