Automated sampling solution for fossil free steel production

M&W JAWO Sampling constructed a complete automated sampling system for the HYBRIT pilot plant in Luleå for fossil free steel production in addition to a customized vezin sampler with the ability of extracting material from a chute at very high temperatures.

A similar pilot plant will also be built in Malmberget, Sweden to do tests for production of fossil free iron pellets.

HYBRIT – short for Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology – is a joint venture between the three Swedish companies: SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall, aiming to replace coking coal with hydrogen from electrolysis of water in the steelmaking process. A successful HYBRIT means reducing Sweden’s CO2 emissions by 10% and Finland’s by 7%. Globally the steel industry accounts for 7% of all CO2 emissions.

SSAB is a global leader in high strength steel, LKAB is Europe’s biggest iron ore producer and Vattenfall is one of Europe’s largest power producers.
