Tenova and Salzgitter AG declared officially a mutual cooperation for the realization of SALCOS (SAlzgitter Low CO2 Steelmaking) by signing a MoU on April 02, in the context of Hannover Messe 2019. SALCOS is a revolutionary concept for a significantly CO2-reduced steel production, commonly developed by the two companies. The aim is to undergo a stepwise transformation process of the integrated steel making route, moving from carbon-intensive steel production based on Blast-Furnaces towards a Direct Reduction and Electric Arc Furnace route, including the flexible incremental utilization of hydrogen. This concept is capable of reducing CO2 emissions up to 95% with respect to the entire steel production route.

The cooperation aims at jointly applying for public funding of the SALCOS project.

In this context, Tenova will provide the ENERGIRON-ZR-direct reduction technology, the innovative HYL Direct Reduction Technology with integrated CO2 absorption system, jointly developed by Tenova and Danieli.
