From Carbon-Intensive to Carbon-Neutral: 5 game-changing benefits of digital twins for Steel Makers
Steel is used in almost every industry and can have a tremendous economic and environmental impact. Steel is a highly emission-intensive industry. In 2020, 1.89 tonnes of CO2 were released into the environment for every tonne of steel produced. A total of 2.6 billion tonnes of direct emissions from the industry were generated in 2020, accounting for 7% to 9% of all anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide.Carbon-Intensive to Carbon-Neutral
Steel companies should focus on incremental improvements in order to decrease energy input, reduce carbon emissions, and increase material efficiency. Given how large the steel industry’s carbon footprint is, even small improvements can make a big difference in moving the industry closer to carbon neutrality.
