Innovative industrial transformation of the steel and chemical industries of Europe.

The INITIATE project will advance the implementation of circular economy and industrial symbiosis by re-using residual steel gases as a resource for the cross-sectorial, more efficient and less wasteful manufacture of urea, at a significantly reduced carbon footprint.

Project Concept

The 4.5-year “Innovative industrial transformation of the steel and chemical industries of Europe” – INITIATE project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and it aims at demonstrating industrial symbiosis by using residual carbon-rich gas from the steel sector as a valuable feedstock for the chemical sector. TRL7 piloting combines the continuous production of N2 + H2 and CO2 streams with the innovative ammonia production as a precursor for urea, to be used as fertilizer and AdBlue® . In the project all necessary steps are taken to come to a bankable business case for a first commercial size demonstrator.
