MoU promises cutting-edge solutions for energy efficiency, decarbonisation, and sustainab Mility in steel production

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Tata Steel Ltd. and ABB India, a pioneer in global technology, outlines how the two parties would collaborate to develop cutting-edge models and technologies that will assist the steel industry in minimising its carbon footprint. ABB will provide the mining and metals industries with extensive experience in automation, electrification, and digitalisation.

Tata Steel, one of the leading global steel producers with an annual capacity of 35 million tonnes of crude steel, is dedicated to achieving significant environmental goals, such as becoming carbon neutral by 2045. The steelmaker has a medium-term goal to cut carbon emissions to under two tonnes of CO2 per tonne of crude steel in its Indian operations by 2025, in line with its goals.

In order to evaluate and jointly create short- and long-term alternatives for energy efficiency, decarbonisation, and circularity, the two firms will concentrate on system-level examinations of Tata Steel’s manufacturing plants and production facilities.

ABB and Tata Steel will investigate energy optimisation using hydrogen as a substitute fuel for upstream processes, as well as energy reduction and replacement using fully integrated electrification and digital systems, like ABB AbilityTM eMine and e-Mobility solutions and energy-efficient motors.

The company is working to implement key enablers for deep decarbonisation, such as using more scrap in steelmaking, alternative fuels like natural gas and green hydrogen, renewable energy, and the implementation of carbon capture and storage/utilisation technologies, in order to ensure sustainable growth. By 2030, Tata Steel wants to raise its capacity to 40 million tonnes, thus this partnership with technology partner ABB is essential to achieving that development sustainably.
