H2STEEL: Green H2 and circular bio-coal from biowaste for cost-competitive sustainable Steel

A European project that aims to support the ecological transition of the metallurgy industry

Benefits and sustainable impact for H2Steel


Decarbonization of the European steel sector


Modification of the conventional route: materials and energy chains

Innovative green hydrogen production

About the project

H2STEEL is a European project which has the goal of creating a ground-breaking competitive solution for sustainable green hydrogen and bio coal production from circular biowaste streams.

The project wants to contribute to the EU Green Hydrogen economy and to the decarbonization of the European steel sector, as its green transition is a priority.

The H2STEEL project’s methodology aims at contributing to a greener steel industry by creating a system that reuses biowaste to open a new route for cost-competitive green H2 in Europe

What say about us

The climate cost of the steel industry

Since the Industrial Revolution, the steel industry has been vital to economic and technological progress. However, its reliance on coal has significantly contributed to climate change, with each tonne of steel produced releasing about 1.9 tonnes of CO₂. In 2022, the industry emitted approximately 3.6 billion tonnes of CO₂, accounting
