Tata Steel has launched plans for a project to capture CO2 from its blast furnaces in IJmuiden, Netherlands, and transport it for storage in empty gas fields under the North Sea.
The project would lead to a 30% reduction of CO2 from the steelmaking site.
It is part of Tata Steel's broader sustainability strategy to be CO2 neutral by 2050. The planned project involves new CO2 capture installations at the site to collect the gas before it is transported for storage. The company is now developing plans to obtain the necessary permits.
