SSAB Europe Oy
With HYBRIT technology, SSAB aims to replace coking coal needed for ore-based steelmaking, with fossil-free electricity and hydrogen.
HYBRIT is a new revolutionary steelmaking technology. With HYBRIT technology, SSAB aims to be the first steel company in the world to bring fossil-free steel to the market already in 2026. SSAB will be fossil free by 2045. Together with our partners and customers, SSAB aims to create a fossil-free value chain, from the mine to the end-product.
The steel industry is one of the highest CO2- emitting industries, accounting for 7% of CO2 emissions globally. In 2016, SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall joined forces to create HYBRIT – an initiative that endeavors to revolutionize steelmaking. Using HYBRIT (Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology) technology, SSAB aims to replace coking coal, traditionally needed for ore-based steelmaking, with fossil-free electricity and hydrogen. The result will be the world’s first fossilfree steelmaking technology, with virtually no carbon footprint.
The HYBRIT initiative will contribute to reaching the global climate goals under the Paris Agreement and the national climate goals in Sweden and Finland. Our goal is to reduce Sweden’s CO2 emissions by 10% and Finland’s by 7%. We believe that by taking the lead and showing that it is possible to decarbonize the steel industry, others will follow. The potential is enormous.
