Background

In August 2020, AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke Dillingen announced the start of Germany's first hydrogen-based steel production plant via the blast furnace route.[2] In June 2022, the company announced a broader transition away from BF-BOF production; they will add EAF and DRI capacity at the plant by 2027 and aim to shut down the blast furnace by 2030.[3] Further, they will commission another 1400ttpa EAF by 2045.[4]
