Clean steel – low-carbon steelmaking

European Partnership for Clean Steel - Low Carbon Steelmaking

Basic Information


The Clean Steel Partnership is a mechanism to pilot and demonstrate breakthrough technologies up to Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 8 that can reduce CO2 emissions stemming from EU steel.

Aligned with the European Green Deal targets, the partnership supports EU leadership in transforming the steel industry into a carbon-neutral one, serving as a catalyser for other strategic sectors. By 2027 it will implement at least two demonstration projects that could cut CO2 emissions by 50% compared to 1990 levels and achieve technology readiness level 8 by 2030 in at least twelve areas funded by the partnership.
