Microbes to turn steelmaking gases into fuel

Two global steel companies and a carbon recycling business will build the first commercial plant in Europe to generate bioethanol from steel emissions

Two global steel companies have joined forces with a carbon recycling business to build the first commercial-scale plant in Europe turning steelmaking waste gases into bioethanol.

The €87m (£62m) project has secured €10.2m from the EU’s 2020 Horizon programme for research and development.

The developers – steelmaker ArcelorMittal, engineering company Primetals Technologies and gas fermentation technology provider LanzaTech – claim the process will save a substantial amount of carbon.
