STEEL INDUSTRY DECARBONIZATION
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

An Impartial View of Steel Industry Decarbonization.
24 OCT 2022 - 9am - 5pm / City Center Rosario, Argentina

ABSTRACT
With the Paris Accord comes the demand for the steel industry to reduce CO2/Green House Gas (GHG) emissions to 0.2Tonne/Tonne steel (0.2Te CO2/Testeel) by 2070. The pressure on Steelmills is incomprehensible since they only contribute 7% of GHG emissions using 8% of the total energy worldwide for an average world emission level of 1.8Te CO2/Testeel (2015). The issue of course is our historical image - one of a very dirty industry - and 70% of the GHG currently is sourced from carbon use – ore reduction, combustion or alloying.
Technically, decarbonization is not the correct phraseology since steel is predominantly an alloy of iron and carbon. Perhaps defossilization is a more apt terminology (coined from the decarbonization session at AISTech 2022).
This course will look at the international steel industry’s decarbonization/defossilization efforts and the challenges thereto.

Key words: Decarbonization, Defossilization, BF, BOF, DRI, EAF, Hydrogen, Zero Carbon, Green Steel, International Energy Authority (IEA), Value in Use (VIU), Metallics.


PROGRAMME
1. Introduction to decarbonization
2. The spectrum of industry decarbonization opportunities
3. The “global decarbonization solution”
4. Challenges
5. Current Status of Decarbonization
6. Summary and Final Discussion

Dr. Sara Hornby
Global Strategic Solutions, Inc., USA

Sara received her BSc(Hons) Metallurgy and her British Steel Corporation (BSC) sponsored PhD in Industrial Metallurgy at Sheffield Hallam University, UK. Her UK cupola foundry, R&D, and Steelmill (Firth Brown Tools and BSC) experience provided a good basis for her N. America career which began with >17 years with air Liquide. This was followed by technology company management positions (Tenova Goodfellow, Midrex Technologies Inc., Linde Gases, Inteco PTI, TMS International) leading finally to her own consulting company, Global Strategic Solutions, Inc. Her involvement in applied R&D, new technology development and knowledge exchange, through networking with industry (especially operators), academia and students, OEMs and colleagues, has led to practice innovations and process optimization, especially for the steel industry. Sara holds 5 patents, has published over 127 papers, seminars and courses internationally and was the 2020 recipient of both the AIME AIST Benjamin F. Fairless Award and the AIST EF technical committee’s John Bell Award.

She is an AIME Oral History participant, an interviewee for the Women in Steel books and is the Institute of Metals, Mining and Material’s (IoM3’s) 2022 Hadfield Medal recipient. As an active member of AIST and ISS, Sara has participated in the BOD, University/Industry Relations, Ironmaking, EAF Steelmaking, DRI Committees and was Chairman of the Process Technology Division and the ISS BOD International Affairs Committee. Involvement in the latter led to IAS becoming an ISS (Now AIST) International Section.

Challenged to consider a metallurgy career, Sara prides herself in being a trail blazer.
