Completion of Energy4HYBRIT biomaterial sidestream prefeasibility study in Finland
The Energy4HYBRIT prefeasibility study, part of SSAB’s plan to be fossil free by 2045, has been completed. In this prefeasibility study, SSAB investigated the use of fossil-free energy sources, primarily biomaterial sidestreams, to replace fossil fuels in certain steelmaking processes, for example rolling processes. The Raahe mill in Finland acted as the reference in the project. The prefeasibility study indicates that it would be possible to replace a significant amount of fossil fuel consumption with felling and other bio-based sidestream components at the Raahe mill.
