Decarbonization of French Enterprises of Ukrainian “ArcelorMittal”

"ArcelorMittal", metallurgy company of Ukrainian origin, announces €1.7 Bln 10-Year Investment Plan Designed to Decarbonize Its Steel Mills in France

Until 2027, an electric arc furnace and a module will be built at the Fos-sur-Mer plant, which will produce up to 2.5 million tons of reduced iron per year. This facility will be able to use hydrogen metallurgy technologies.

An electric arc furnace will be installed at the ArcelorMittal Dunkirk steel plant.

Until 2030, 3 blast furnaces will be replaced by more modern ones: one at ArcelorMittal Dunkirk and 2 at Fos-sur-Mer. These measures will reduce CO2 emissions by 40%, and the reduction in emissions of the entire French heavy industry, in comparison with 202, will be reduced by 10%.

The project will be implemented with the assistance of the French government.
