Examining the strategies and deployments around decarbonisation in hard to abate sectors, we speak with CEOs, heads of corporate strategy, CTOs, Innovation/R&D, project directors & heads of carbon management from around the world. Hosted by Alex Cameron of the Decarbonization Leaders Network and Decarb Connect & produced by Janno Media.
How is Wyoming, a major fossil fuel state, creating the foundations and infrastructure for a future Hydrogen market??
Eugene Holubnyak, Director of the Hydrogen Energy Research Center at the University of Wyoming, joins Alex Cameron to explore how Wyoming is establishing its strategy to become a major hydrogen economy player - plus - an update on the emerging Western States Hydrogen Hub
Energy Crisis Part 3 - Craig Golinowski talks Underinvestment, the Energy Crisis and Policy Durability
Craig Golinowski is President and Manager Partner of Carbon Infrastructure Partners – he joins Alex Cameron, Founder of Decarb Connect, for the third and final part of our Energy Crisis miniseries here on the podcast.
Energy Crisis Part 2 - Decarbonising industry through the energy crisis - finding the opportunities
Jerome Lucaes joins Alex Cameron to talk about the impact of the European energy crisis on industrial co2 strategies. Jerome brings plenty of experience from both RUSAL and Rio Tinto and critical industries on the creation of high-value net zero strategies.
Reducing steel’s co2 by 95% - the H2 Green Steel experience
Steel is responsible for 8% of global co2 each year, and contributes as much as 40% of all industrial co2. Listen in to hear Kajsa Ryttberg-Wallgren’s insights into the at-scale green steel project she’s tasked with and the potential for transforming the global steel value chain.
With every ton of steel emitting (on average) 1.85 tons of co2, the industry contributes around 8% of co2 globally. It’s also one of our most essential materials used across all developed and developing nations for infrastructure and construction projects and is inextricably linked to economic growth.
Listen to Alex’s conversation with Kajsa Ryttberg-Wallgren, EVP of the Hydrogen Business Unit at H2 Green Steel. Taking “the world doesn’t need another pilot” as a starting point, the conversation explores the company’s at-scale first project in Sweden and its emerging international portfolio, all of which focuses on reducing emissions from steel by 95% and will be producing 5m tonnes of green steel a year by 2030.
Other takeaways include exploring the reality of creating a green steel project when you have no legacy business, the need to fight for the best talent and where they’ve found it, along with thoughts on selecting and collaborating with the right partners for your model. You’ll also get the opportunity to hear from Kajsa on disrupting the future global steel supply chain.
The acceleration of their plans has been made possible by the support H2 Green Steel it has received from leading financial institutions for its €3.5 billion debt financing, just confirmed in October 2022. Construction of its green steel plant will be enabled by a combination of equity and debt financing from organisations including AB Svensk Exportkredit (SEK), BNP Paribas, ING, UniCredit, Societe Generale and KfW IPEX-Bank. More institutions are finalising their involvement, including the European Investment Bank.
