OIES Podcast – Barriers and opportunities for greening steel production

In this podcast, David Ledesma talks to Hasan Muslemani, Head of Carbon Management Research at OIES, about his ongoing research on greening the steel industry. Hasan discusses the outlook for incorporating low-carbon technologies into the sector, particularly carbon capture and storage (CCS) and hydrogen solutions. Barriers and opportunities for each technology are also discussed, including indications of the green premium that decarbonised steel would incur. Hasan also highlights key considerations to creating a green steel market, including potential buyers of the green product and how governments can help drive this transition.
