  • Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) will implement pilot projects in the Steel Sector.
  • It aims to replace fossil fuels and fossil fuel-based feedstock with Green Hydrogen and its derivatives.
  • These pilot projects will be implemented through the Ministry of Steel and the Implementing Agencies nominated under this Scheme.
  • Three areas have been identified as thrust areas for the pilot projects in the steel sector.
  • They are
    • Use of Hydrogen in Direct Reduced Ironmaking process;
    • Use of Hydrogen in Blast Furnace; and
    • Substitution of fossil fuels with Green Hydrogen in a gradual manner.
  • The scheme will also support pilot projects involving any other innovative use of hydrogen for reducing carbon emissions in iron and steel production.
