Nucor to trial carbon capture technology in Kentucky


Nucor Steel Gallatin will test a new carbon dioxide (CO2) capture system at its Kentucky site as part of a new partnership with the University of Kentucky Research Foundation.

The duo on Friday (25th April) unveiled the plans, having been named as one of 12 projects that will be funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to advance carbon capture technologies.

As part of this, more than 50 industry and university experts are now working together to apply carbon capture and sequestration techniques to an electric arc furnace steel making process.

The Nucor and University of Kentucky pilot is thought to provide a better understanding of the costs and effectiveness of carbon capture technology for flue gas with low CO2 content and the feasibility of replication of this technology at other electric arc furnace steel mills.
