Steel Marginal Abatement Cost Programme
A Knowledge Sharing and Open Access Programme for Carbon Emissions Reduction Options in the Iron & Steel Sector
provide steel companies with the option to customise the underlying processes within the tool based on their specific available technologies and process design

Knowledge sharing can accelerate the deployment of low-carbon technologies in the iron/steel industry, but there are barriers brought about by differences in business models and languages that aim to reduce carbon emissions. The primary aim of this programme is to enable an interactive platform for knowledge sharing of best practice approaches and technologies for emission reductions in the steel sector and their associated financing models.

Marginal abatement cost curve for negative-cost emission reduction technologies in the steel sector is illustrated in following figure.
The Steel MAC (Steel Marginal Abatement Cost) Programme provides diverse stakeholders such as business leaders, the public sector and policymakers with a systematic visualisation of the complex processes of steelmaking, including associated energy and emission intensities. Developers can acquire data and improve the reputation of BHP’s industrial carbon capture and storage project in China. In addition, the tool will support researchers in collecting data and communicating solutions for the decarbonisation of the steel sector. The Steel MAC tool brings together regional partners through organised workshops, network meetings, and informal dinners in the US, Canada, China and Australia. The ultimate goal for the Steel MAC is to serve as a ‘handy man’ for carbon dioxide emissions reduction in the steel sector.

It will help researchers to identify and develop solutions for reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the steel sector by enhancing engagement between policymakers, industry participants and researchers. The tool will aid researchers in informally collecting advice from the public on a variety of technologies and/or project proposals. The tool will further serve as a bilingual platform to advance communication between the English-speaking and Chinese communities where translation will be provided by the project partners.
