Cleveland-Cliffs Seeks Funding for Carbon Capture Research
Cleveland-Cliffs announced that it is finalizing an initial phase of research for the front-end engineering design for large-scale carbon capture at its Burns Habor integrated iron and steel facility and will be seeking additional funding for the next phase.
The first phase of research was conducted using funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations. Following the results of the research, the steel producer submitted an application for more funding from the DOE.
The research project is looking into how to capture up to 2.8 million tons of CO2 per year from blast furnace gas with a net carbon capture efficiency of at least 95% at its Indiana facility. The study would be funded 50% by Cleveland-Cliffs and 50% by the DOE through the Bipartisan Infrasture Law.
Cleveland-Cliffs participates in the DOE’s Better Climate Challenge initiative and has an ongoing technical partnership with the DOE.
