Hydrogen Technology – Hydrogen for decarbonization of the steel industry

Essay topic 

Green hydrogen is poised to become the clean energy carrier for the world to transit toward a low-carbon and sustainable future. 

There are many other existing and upcoming uses for hydrogen which can significantly reduce our CO2 emissions. For example, hydrogen could be used to decarbonize the steel-making industry, which currently generates up to 8% of global CO2 emissions. 

The goal of this essay is to perform a literature review on using “Hydrogen for the decarbonization of the steel industry”

Format as follows:
