Dutch Tata Steel, a subsidiary of Indian steel maker Tata Steel, has announced that its Ijmuiden steel plant has ranked third in the 2022 carbon intensity benchmarks published by the World Steel Association (worldsteel). This is the third year in a row the factory has scored a top five position.

The intensity of carbon steel produced at IJmuiden is about seven percent below the European average and nearly 19 percent below the global average.

“We are investing significantly to further reduce the environmental impact of our IJmuiden operations,” said Hans van den Berg, chairman of the management board of Tata Steel Nederland.

Tata Steel Nederland aims to be completely carbon neutral by 2045. The company also plans to switch to green hydrogen-based steelmaking at its IJmuiden steel plant. It targets to commission its first direct reduction plant and electric furnace by 2030 and reduce its carbon emissions by 35-40 percent.
