ANDRITZ Carbon Capture Plant Is Now Operating Successfully at Voestalpine

International technology group ANDRITZ has supplied its first carbon capture plant to the steel industry.

The plant separates carbon dioxide from the flue gases resulting from iron making using an amine-based process designed by ANDRITZ. The captured CO2 is filled into large industrial gas bottles and delivered to an Austrian energy storage company that is investigating new ways of making it available for re-use in steel production, fostering a sustainable carbon circularity and reducing the need for fossil fuel.

The plant was ordered by the K1-MET metallurgical competence center, a leading research body working with national and international partners like voestalpine to address issues such as energy efficiency, circular economy, and climate-neutral metal production. It helps to gain experience in plant operation, investigate new absorption media, and optimize the process.
