Steel production is estimated to account for 11% of all greenhouse gas emissions globally, because of the amounts of gas or coal that are needed, and engineers and scientists have been working on green hydrogen as an alternative power source, the report in the green energy news site went on.
But there is another major obstacle to overcome if the 1,000 or so other steel plants around the world are to follow suit, with hydrogen power production mostly fossil-fuel based and only 0.1% considered green hydrogen power.
