REINVENT visit to ThyssenKrupp's steel plant

The REINVENT team from the Wuppertal Institute, accompanied by representatives of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MWIDE), will visit the steel plant by ThyssenKrupp in Duisburg on May 14th. At the Duisburg site, the entire steel production process is carried out - from pig iron and crude steel to the rolling mill and further processing steps. The focus of the visit is to gain an overview of the whole process, focussing on certain steps of the value chain like rolling and casting processes. Moreover, we want to look ahead by getting insights into the state of low-carbon technologies - like the project „Carbon2Chem“ which aims to use emissions from steel production as raw material for chemicals.
