Project Description: 

Steel production is responsible for 8% of CO2 emissions globally, one proposed method to help reduce this is to refine iron using a hydrogen plasma instead of coke, which would reduce the CO2 emissions by over 95%. Our design team is looking into some important factors of a potential plant: location, sizing, and how it will get access to the hydrogen needed for this process.
