Industrial processes contribute significantly to global carbon dioxide emissions, with iron and steel manufacturing alone responsible for 6% of the total figure. The STEPWISE project, funded through the European Horizon 2020 (H2020) Low Carbon Energy (LCE) programme under grant agreement number 640769, is looking at reducing CO2 emissions in the iron and steel making industries. At the heart of this project is the ECN technology called sorption-enhanced water-gas shift (SEWGS), which is a solid…

Techno-economic assessment of SEWGS technology when applied to integrated steel-plant for CO2 emission mitigation
Mitigation of CO2 emissions in the industrial sector is one of the main climate challenges for the coming decades. This work, carried out within the STEPWISE H2020 project, performs a preliminary
Modelling of CO 2 and H 2O Interaction During Adsorption Cycles on Hydrotalcite for SEWGS Applications
Sorption Enhanced Water Gas Shift (SEWGS) is an intensified pre-combustion capture process, based on a potassium promoted Mg/Al-hydrotalcite sorbent. The technology has demonstrated low energy
Minimizing CO2 emissions with renewable energy: a comparative study of emerging technologies in the steel industry
Implementing CCUS technologies at existing steel plants reduces CO2 emissions by 70%, requiring 1.1 MW h per ton of renewable electricity. H2-based steel-making and CCU technologies require 4 and 8
Characterization of Chemisorbed Species and Active Adsorption Sites in Mg–Al Mixed Metal Oxides for High-Temperature CO2 Capture
Mg–Al mixed metal oxides (MMOs), derived from the decomposition of layered double hydroxides (LDHs), have been purposed as adsorbents for CO2 capture of industrial plant emissions. To aid in the
