ArcelorMittal and partners to develop new electrolysis plant in Germany


Together with energy supplier Vulkan Energiewirtschaft Oderbrucke (VEO), and plant supplier McPhy Energy, steel and mining group ArcelorMittal will set up a pilot electrolysis plant and a hydrogen filling station at its Eisenhutternstadt site in Germany.

Announced by subsidiary ArcelorMittal Eisenhutternstadt, the plant will feature a total power capacity of 2MW (megawatt) which will be provided by two electrolysers to be supplied by McPhy.

The electrolysers will be used to produce hydrogen to be used in steel production, a sector that is responsible for around 8% of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

According to the company, the hydrogen will initially be used in the cold rolling mill, which is where steel is strengthened by changing its shape without using heat.
