Shell, BlueScope work on Australian hydrogen hub
MarketScreener, Other, 07/12/2021
Australia-based steel producer BlueScope Steel has agreed to work with Shell to develop a renewable hydrogen hub at its 2.1mn t/yr Port Kembla steelworks in the Illawarra region of New South Wales (NSW). The two firms will initially investigate building a 10MW pilot-scale renewable hydrogen electrolyser to allow them to test the use of green hydrogen in BlueScope’s blast furnace at Port Kembla. […] BlueScope is also partnering with CSIRO to use charcoal produced from the pyrolysis of organic material, or biochar, as another replacement for a portion of the metallurgical coal used in the blast furnace.
