Abstract

The aim of this research work is to increase the quality, productivity of steel and to reduce the CO2 emissions from the global manufacturing sector. On average, the production of one ton of steel generates about two tons of CO2 emission. The main cause for energy inefficiency and environment pollution are outdated steel production technology in use. The green steel is a new steelmaking process lowers green house gas emission, cuts costs and improves the quality of steel. The new process is known as molten oxide electrolysis and the clever use of iron-chromium alloys. When we are using molten oxide electrolysis to create oxygen from the iron in lunar soil and steel was created as a byproduct of steel. This process is limiting carbon emissions. This concept is fundamental to the triple bottom line concept of sustainability, which focuses on the interplay between environmental, social and economic factors. The production of steel results in the generation of byproducts that can reduce CO2 emissions by substituting resources in other industries. The implementation of green manufacturing focused on investigating the energy saving & CO2 emission from producing steel & effective utilization of recycling of steel scrap as a way of sustainable development in steel industry.
