Solution 6. Carbon capture, carbon pricing and carbon offset/taxes
Carbon capture and pricing services in the metal industry refer to technologies and systems that are used to reduce carbon emissions from metal production processes, as well as the financial mechanisms that are used to incentivize and fund these efforts.
Carbon capture technologies include processes such as chemical absorption, adsorption, and membrane separation, which are used to capture and store carbon dioxide emissions from industrial sources. These technologies are typically integrated into the metal production process and can reduce carbon emissions by up to 90%.
Pricing services, such as carbon taxes or cap-and-trade systems, are used to put a financial value on carbon emissions and create a market-based incentive for companies to reduce their emissions. These systems can also provide funding for carbon capture technologies and other emissions-reducing measures.
Overall, carbon capture and pricing services in the metal industry can play a critical role in reducing the environmental impact of metal production and helping the industry to meet emissions reduction targets set by governments and international organizations.
According to the International Aluminium Institute, the average global emissions intensity for primary aluminum production is approximately 14.2 kg CO2 per 1 kg of aluminum produced. Therefore, for 1 ton of aluminum (1000 kg), approximately 14,200 kg CO2 would be released.
Solution 7. Recycle Metal Process
A recycle metal process in the metal industry refers to a system where resources are used, reused, and recycled in a closed loop, minimizing waste and pollution. Services that support this type of economy include:
- Metal recycling and recovery: This process involves collecting and processing scrap metal, which is then used to produce new metal products.
- Product design for recyclability: This service involves designing metal products with recyclability in mind, making it easier to disassemble and recycle them at the end of their life.
- Extended producer responsibility: Under this service, manufacturers are held responsible for the end-of-life management of their products, including collection and recycling.
- Life-cycle assessment: This service evaluates the environmental impact of metal products throughout their entire life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials to disposal.
- Leasing and remanufacturing: This service involves leasing metal products, such as machinery, instead of buying them outright. At the end of the lease, the product is returned and remanufactured for use by another customer.
Solution 8. Green Hydrogen Application
Green hydrogen can be used as a cost cutting measure in the metal industry by reducing the reliance on fossil fuels for energy production. The metal industry is heavily reliant on fossil fuels for energy production, which can be costly and contribute to environmental pollution. Green hydrogen, which is produced through the electrolysis of water using renewable energy sources, can provide a cleaner and more sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.
One way green hydrogen can be used in the metal industry is through the process of hydrogen reduction. This process uses hydrogen gas to reduce metal oxides to their pure metal form. Green hydrogen can be used in place of traditional hydrogen, which is often produced from natural gas, to reduce the cost and carbon footprint of this process.
Additionally, green hydrogen can be used as a fuel source for industrial furnaces and boilers, which are commonly used in the metal industry. This can help to reduce the cost and environmental impact of energy production in the metal industry.
Green hydrogen can be used in the metal industry as a reducing agent in the production of certain metals, such as titanium and zirconium. It can also be used as a source of heat and power for industrial processes, and as a fuel for transport and logistics. Additionally, green hydrogen can be used in the production of ammonia, which is a key ingredient in fertilizers used in agriculture. In the future, hydrogen could be used to decarbonize the entire steel-making process, and also could be used to power hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and shipping.
