Tata Steel Ijmuiden reaches new CO2 efficiency milestone

Tata Steel says its Dutch integrated plant located in Ijmuiden has been ranked third in the 2022 CO2 intensity benchmark calculated by the World Steel Association.

The full list of the benchmark ranking has not been published officially yet by the organisation, but Tata Steel issued a statement to underline the new milestone reached by its operation, Kallanish notes.

“The CO2 intensity of the steel produced in IJmuiden is around 7% below the European average and almost 19% below the global average,” Tata Steel says, adding the site has made the top five since 2020.

Tata Steel targets complete CO2 neutrality by 2045. “The company plans to switch to green hydrogen-based steelmaking at its IJmuiden steelworks. It targets to commission its first direct reduction plants and electric furnaces by 2030, becoming a producer of large quantities of high-quality green steel and reducing its CO2 emissions by 35-40%,” Tata Steel concludes.
