ArcelorMittal is experienced in full-scale demonstrations. Furthermore, it has the necessary expertise and capacity to setting up the complete process from new raw materials supply, energy flow between installations, handling of the recycled metallurgical gases and green hydrogen to injection and optimising control of the Blast furnace process.
Joanneum Research Forschungsgesellschaft mbH, one of Austria’s largest non-university research organisations, is focusing on hydrogen research and its impact on materials to minimize the risks of material embrittlement.
Università Politecnica delle Marche
The Università Politecnica delle Marche (UNIVPM), located in Ancona, Italy, offers a diverse range of programs in Economics, Engineering, Agriculture, Science, Medicine, and Surgery. UNIVPM is committed to scientific research and higher education while fostering internationalisation and industry collaboration as a top priority.
The Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (DIISM) participates in RecHycle bringing its expertise on energy, material and process modelling. It will also carry out the Life Cycle Analysis and Techno Economic Assessment of the new steelmaking route.
ArcelorMittal Maizières Research
ArcelorMittal Mazières Research supports ArcelorMittal’s sustainability goals and technological innovation. It fosters continuous improvement and competitiveness by developing new industrial processes and optimising existing ones to improve quality while also being responsible stewards of the environment.
ArcelorMittal Mazières will focus on modelling hydrogen impact in the blast furnace. This will allow a thorough analysis of the technical feasibility, analyse of the new operating sequence, and optimise the process before proceeding to full-scale demonstrations.
Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique
In RecHycle, the LCTS contributes with its expertise on ceramic matrix composites to design new material architectures and tailor the processing route to hydrogen and other gases.
The French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) is among the world’s leading research institutions. The Laboratory for ThermoStructural Composites (LCTS) is a joint lab of CNRS, Bordeaux University, CEA and Safran with 34 years experience in basic science research on refractory composites.
IRT Saint Exupéry
IRT Saint Exupéry is a private research foundation, supported by the French government with the mission to accelerate science, technological research and transfer to the aeronautics and space industries for the development of reliable, robust, certifiable and sustainable innovative solutions.
IRT, alongside CNRS, will design a new material architecture from ceramic matrix composites (CMC) and perform testing to ensure thermal, mechanical, and environmental specifications are met.
