KTH joins the HYBRIT Initiative for fossil free steel
During 2018, KTH’s Materials Science and Engineering department joined forces with LKAB, SSAB and Vattenfall in their efforts to reduce the environmental impact of steel production. The initiative is called HYBRIT and is the first of its kind. If the project succeeds, it will contribute to Sweden’s national climate goal – to be fossil-free by 2045.
KTH Live-In Lab is a platform of multiple testbeds with the purpose of speeding up the pace of innovation for ‘green’ tech in housing and construction.
