Steel News – Late October 2022

LIBERTY Steel UK has successfully completed trials of ecoke – a sustainable new raw material that can replace anthracite, the main source of charge carbon in electric steelmaking, and reduce steel’s carbon footprint by as much as 30%.

The ecoke initiative is part of LIBERTY’s drive to lead transformation of steel manufacturing through its GREENSTEEL strategy. Production at LIBERTY’s electric arc furnace in Rotherham generates just 10% of the direct emissions compared with traditional coal-based blast furnaces which produce the vast majority of the UK’s steel output.
