Scientists discover green way to produce steel

Closer scrutiny by NGO Centre for Science and Environment, however, shows the process is not quite as CO2 emission-free as claimed

Early in May, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) announced the discovery of a new method of producing steel that is free of CO2 emissions. The process, known as molten oxide electrolysis (MOE), was initially employed to generate oxygen. The product generated was oxygen and, astonishingly, steel.

Date: 30 October 2012

Faced with limited resources and competition, few Indian mining/metals companies have improved their green footprint. Regular violations of environmental laws and poor safety track records suggest that steelmakers have a long way to go to achieve best-in-class benchmarks.

Stiff regulations, strict enforcement, resource constraints and competitive threats should drive better behaviour. CSE's GRP team explains how increased investor scrutiny can help the green production cause
