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.
