Abu Dhabi’s clean energy company Masdar is teaming up with Emirates Steel Arkan to develop a green hydrogen project to decarbonise the hard-to-abate steel sector in the UAE.
The pilot project, which is being hailed as the first of its kind in the Mena region, will be located at Emirates Steel’s production units in the Industrial City of Abu Dhabi and will help the company produce green steel, which is in high demand globally.
The project, expected to be commissioned early next year, will demonstrate the use of green hydrogen, instead of natural gas, to extract iron from iron ore, a key step in steel making, the two companies said on Wednesday.
