PJSC Severstal has embarked on an active phase of work under the Step up program of the World Steel Association, which aims to reduce its impact on the environment and climate. This project will allow the Cherepovets Steel Mill to conduct a study using the Worldsteel benchmarking system and identify opportunities to reduce CO2 emissions. The association program involves work in four main areas: the optimal selection and use of raw materials, energy efficiency, increased productivity and process reliability.

Worldsteel specialists visited the CherMK production site on September 10-12, 2019. Association employees held a series of meetings with Severstal experts and management in order to determine areas of work to improve process efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Interaction with Worldsteel experts allowed Severstal to agree on a methodology for estimating CO2 emissions, identify key drivers for reducing emissions, and develop a program for further work with Worldsteel under the Step up program to achieve industry best practices.

Severstal has been participating in the Worldsteel benchmarking system for several years, providing data on greenhouse gas emissions, and CherMK is currently ranked 16th out of 64 companies with comparable production technology with a result of 2.1 tons of CO2 / t of liquid steel. (coverage areas 1-3). But the company plans to further significantly improve its position in this area. At CherMK, an inventory of the main sources of CO2 has already been carried out, an emission map has been developed, and carbon content in raw materials and slags has been measured to refine greenhouse gas emission factors.
