ΣIDERWIN project proposes to develop a breakthrough innovation compared to the present-day steel production process by applying electrochemical technique to iron metal production. The electrolysis process using renewable energies will transform any iron oxide, including those inside the by-products from other metallurgies, into steel plate with a significant reduction of energy use. This process decomposes under mild conditions but at intense reaction rate naturally occurring iron oxides such as hematite into iron metal and oxygen gas. By developing a low-CO2 steel production process, the project could contribute to the reduction of the total greenhouse gas emis...
