keywords
The present proposal aims at developing a breakthrough technology to produce steel without any direct CO2 emissions. The solution consists in using electricity directly to decompose iron oxide into metal and oxygen. The proposal is following up on the ULCOS program, during which the key phenomena controlling the efficiency of the electrochemical reaction have been identified. The work packages are focused on understanding the physics and chemistry of these phenomena in order to propose the design at the scale of an industrial individual cell of an optimised technology demonstrating a very high level of CO2 mitigation. We will use a numerical energy forecasting model, TIMES model, to understand the economical conditions of penetration of this technological breakthrough
