RecHycle Project

Recycling hydrogen

for climate neutrality

RecHycle is an EU-funded project that investigates

the use of green hydrogen and recycled

metallurgical gases in steelmaking.


Replace coal in the steelmaking and make ArcelorMittal plants carbon-neutral by 2050.

Metallurgical gases are hydrogen-rich and produced onsite. They will be injected into the blast furnace to replace coke and pulverised coal. This will help minimise CO2 emissions and sustainably produce green steel.


Promote sustainable practices by using innovative technologies and renewable energy sources to reduce carbon footprint and increase the production of green steel.
