Danieli Group in the era of green steel: technological innovation for growth

In last years, steel industry has experienced a constant evolution, driven by the need to reduce production costs, increase efficiency and reduce carbon footprint. In Europe, Italy is first in the production of steel by electric furnaces and this result is clearly linked to the performance of leading companies like Buttrio based Danieli Group. Thanks to the series of investments in innovation and sustainability made over the years, the Italian leading supplier of equipment and physical plants to the metal industry can now claim to be ready to drive steel green transition. CEO Giacomo Mareschi Danieli explained it in a post on LinkedIn: “They first called it efficiency, then Industry 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0, now they all know it as the era of green steel”. Recently interviewed by “Siderweb”, the CEO emphasized the company’s commitment to investigate and create innovative solutions to reduce Co2 emissions. Q-ONE, Hybrid MI.DA., DRI (Direct Reduced Iron) are a few examples of the technologies patented by Danieli Group. “Nowadays, investment and transformation projects must be firmly anchored to the notion of sustainability, thus helping steel producers to reduce and limit their carbon footprint, also improving efficiency at the same time”, wrote CEO Giacomo Mareschi Danieli on LinkedIn.

Danieli Group’s innovative technological solutions meet green steel market demands

Danieli Group’s purpose is to contribute to the reduction of global emissions by increasing the supply of innovative solutions with lower Co2 emissions per ton of steel produced. Focused on a market in which green transition becomes every day more important, Danieli Group will continue to consolidate and expand its activity in order to ensure greater competitiveness in terms of innovation, technology, quality, costs, productivity and customer service. The most significant developments of recent years concern the production processes and they are thus centered on replacing the traditional processes with cutting-edge-technologies. In the current industrial landscape, digital technologies are increasingly gaining ground, revolutionizing the entire industry. Among the most recent innovations there is the digital furnace which stands out as a cutting-edge solution that optimizes the production and improves energy efficiency. Danieli Group’s Digimelter is a great example. It is an innovative digitally controlled electric furnace. Hybrid by design, it can be run on alternative energy sources such as solar energy and wind energy. Energiron DR is another one. Developed by Danieli in collaboration with Tenova, Energiron DR is a technology that enables the use of Natural Gas as reducing agent with the possibility to mix it with hydrogen up to 100% and it is already becoming an international standard. German steelmaking Group Salzgitter has recently made the choice to use Energiron DR technology in the new DRI plant that will be installed in the historic steel mill of Salzgitter, Lower Saxony.
