Nippon Steel Carbon Neutral Vision 2050 - A Challenge of Zero-Carbon Steel
As a part of our widespread efforts toward achieving a decarbonized society, by adopting “Nippon Steel Carbon Neutral Vision 2050 – A Challenge of Zero-Carbon Steel” as our own new initiative, we will consider and implement various measures as a top priority management issue in order to win development competitions with our competitors in Europe, the United States, China and South Korea and to continue to lead the world's steel industry.
By 2030, our plan is to achieve reduction of CO2 emissions by 30% compared to 2013 through the practical implementation of COURSE50 into the current blast furnace and basic oxygen furnace processes, reduction of CO2 emissions in existing processes, and establishment of an efficient production framework.
Toward 2050, we will take on the challenge of adopting ultra-innovative technologies such as mass production of high-grade steel in electric furnaces, drastic reduction of CO2 emissions through Super-COURSE50 and other developments in hydrogen reduction methods, and production of direct reduction iron using hydrogen, and we will aim to achieve carbon neutrality by taking a multi-aspect approach, including measures to offset carbon through CCUS and other methods.
