ArcelorMittal eyes $10bn investment to reduce emissions by 2030

Steel manufacturing giant ArcelorMittal has announced plans to reduce carbon emissions by 25% by 2030 as part of a wider net-zero ambition for 2050, with the new target set to be back by a $10bn investment into low-carbon and circular solutions.

The company will work with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to validate efforts to reach net-zero emissions

The company will work with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to validate efforts to reach net-zero emissions

ArcelorMittal unveiled an ambition to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 back in September 2020. The company has this week set a new interim goal to reduce its carbon emissions intensity by 25% by 2030 for scope 1 and 2 emissions globally. A European-wide target of a 30% emissions reduction has also been increased to 35%.

The company estimates that reaching these goals will require an investment of around $10bn in capital expenditure, with 35% of the funding to be delivered by 2025. ArcelorMittal believes that the steel industry will “undergo a transformation of the assets used to make steel on a scale not seen for over 100 years”.

ArcelorMittal’s chief executive Aditya Mittal said: “As the world’s most prolific material, steel can make a huge contribution to the decarbonization of the global economy. Steel is already the material of choice due to its lower carbon footprint and high recyclability.

“But we can and must go further as zero carbon-emissions steel has the potential to be the backbone of the buildings, infrastructure, industry and machinery, and transport systems that will enable governments, customers and investors to meet their net-zero commitments. ArcelorMittal has been working hard to be at the forefront of our sector in the net-zero transition, as we believe not only will this help decarbonize the global economy but will also generate opportunities in multiple aspects of our business.”

The company will work with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to validate efforts to reach net-zero emissions, but has already earmarked certain decarbonisation projects across its operations.

In Spain, operational emissions will be reduced by 50% by constructing a 2.3 million tonne hydrogen-powered direct reduced iron (DRI) unit at Gijon. Similarly, the construction of a DRI plant in Dunkirk will produce two million tonnes of hot metal annually while reduced carbon emissions by 2.85 million tonnes by 2030. Hydrogen will also be tested at a DRI facility in Quebec.

In Gent in Belgium, the company is building an industrial-scale demonstration plant that converts waste wood into bio-coal through a process called “torrefaction” – a thermal process to convert biomass. The plant is expected to be completed in 2022 and will produce 80 million litres of bioethanol annually.

Additionally, ArcelorMittal will continue to invest in “Torero” and “Carbalyst” – two technologies to enable the use of circular carbon. Torero is a torrefaction process for bioenergy, while Carbalyst enables waste gases from steelmaking to be used in bioethanol.

Renewables and green tariffs will be prioritised and the use of carbon offsets will account for any residual emissions.

These investments are “underpinned by a set of assumptions”, that could enable decarbonisation to accelerate in certain markets. ArcelorMittal notes that different regions of the world will decarbonise at different paces based on policy and finance and has labelled each region where it operates as either ‘Accelerate’ – a region where decarbonise can happen more quickly due to an enabling environment – or ‘Move’ – a region where they have to push for changes through engagement with suppliers and policymakers. Europe, for example, is expected to be a leading market for carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) infrastructure.

Additionally, the company claims that the cost of green hydrogen will become competitive over the next decade, provided government support is introduced.

SteelZero

Last December, a new collaborative initiative was launched to decarbonise the steel sector.

Convened by The Climate Group, which is perhaps best known for its RE100 and EV100 initiatives, the new scheme is called SteelZero and will represent businesses from all parts of the steel value chain.

By signing up to SteelZero, companies commit to procuring, specifying, stocking or producing 100% net-zero steel across all operations by 2050 at the latest. ArcelorMittal has shared its approach to decarbonisation with other members.

Steel is a notoriously high-emission material and a hard-to-abate sector. More than 90% of metal produced in the world is steel, and the sector is accountable for around 7% of global emissions from fuel use. Researchers believe that a combination of electrification, energy storage, alternative fuels and circular economy innovations are needed to align the sector with net-zero. Carbon capture and offsetting are also being explored by some producers.

Sky powered by 100% renewables globally

Broadcaster Sky is now powered by 100% renewable electricity across its entire operations, meeting a commitment to the RE100 initiative and building towards its net-zero target for 2030.

The integration of renewables has contributed to a 22.7% reduction in Scope 1 & 2 emissions against a 2018 baseline

The integration of renewables has contributed to a 22.7% reduction in Scope 1 & 2 emissions against a 2018 baseline

Sky has met a RE100 commitment to source 100% renewable electricity by 2020. Renewables now power its entire business, including offices, retail stores and journalism hubs across the world.

The target has been met through the installation of onsite technology and purchasing certified renewable electricity tariffs. In regions where Sky cannot control the tariff, Energy Attribute Certificates have been used.

The integration of renewables has contributed to a 22.7% reduction in Scope 1 & 2 emissions against a 2018 baseline. Sky is building towards a target of generation at least 20% of its own renewable electricity on new buildings and large refurbishments.

The RE100’s head Sam Kimmins said: “Congratulations to Sky on achieving their RE100 goal of 100% renewable electricity. As one of the pioneering early members of RE100, it’s great to see Sky realising its bold ambition. We are looking forward to continuing to accelerate change towards zero-carbon grids together with Sky and their growing group of RE100 peers.”

Scope 3 emissions

Accompanying the renewables announcement, Sky has also published the reporting methodology for its Scope 3 emissions, which are responsible for 98% of its total value chain emissions.

Scope 3 calculations are usually based on estimates. Sky is now working with suppliers to replace estimates with primary data with the goal of using more accurate tracking and reporting to accelerate progress to net-zero.

Fiona Ball, Sky Group Director Bigger Picture, said: “Transparently sharing data on our net-zero transition is central to Sky’s approach. We know that business can accelerate the journey to a zero-carbon future by sharing knowledge, learnings and data as freely and widely as possible. We have published our Scope 3 reporting methodology to enable others to go on the journey with us, because net-zero won’t be achieved by individuals but through collective action.”

In February last year, Sky committed to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2030 through strategies to make its products more energy efficient, its film and TV more sustainable and by engaging consumers and the value chain to “go zero”.

Sky’s commitment will see its entire fleet of 5,000 vehicles transition to zero emissions by 2030, alongside initiatives to make the technology products it offers and launches more efficient. TV and film recorded by the broadcaster will also be covered under the net-zero carbon ambition as well.

It binds Sky to reducing emissions from business operations, suppliers and customers (during the use of its products) by at least 50%, then investing in robust, nature-based offsetting schemes to address residual emissions. Sky has notably received carbon-neutral certification for its business operations every year since 2006 and has had its new targets approved in line with a 1.5C trajectory by the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).

UK’s largest fleet operators to switch to electric vehicles by 2030

Some of the UK’s largest commercial fleet operators, including Royal Mail, BT and Tesco, have committed to converting their fleets to British-built electric vehicles (EVs) by 2030 at the latest, if the Government can overcome barriers related to grids and charging infrastructure.

According to the group, enabling policies could help unlock private sector investment of more than £50bn in infrastructure and EV fleets over the next five years

According to the group, enabling policies could help unlock private sector investment of more than £50bn in infrastructure and EV fleets over the next five years

Working with the Government’s Electric Vehicle Fleet Accelerator (EVFA), bp, BT, Direct Line Group, Royal Mail, ScottishPower, Severn Trent and Tesco have agreed to work collaboratively to increase the uptake of EVs in the UK.

The companies and EVFA members have committed to converting their fleets to EVs by 2030 and to buying 70,000 British-built electric vans, provided the Government introduces enabling policies.

An accompanying report from the group is calling on the Government to future proof the electricity network and invest to enable the integration of EVs into grid capacities. They are also calling for EV charging infrastructure to be fast-tracked into the planning system by working with local authorities and to increase the supply and diversity of UK-made EVs.

According to the group, these enabling policies could help unlock private sector investment of more than £50bn in infrastructure and EV fleets over the next five years.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “I wholeheartedly welcome this commitment by leading employers to fully electrify their van fleets by 2030. This announcement will be a major boost to British vehicle production.

“The government is committed to providing the electric charging points and other infrastructure the UK needs as we build back greener.”

EVolution

UK businesses are planning to spend £15.8bn on EVs between April 2021 and March 2022, a 50% increase in spending from the previous year.

That is according to a new survey from Centrica Business Solutions. The survey polled 200 UK businesses that operate fleets. Two-thirds of the companies polled said that they are on track to switch to a fully electric fleet by 2030 – the time at which the UK Government’s ban on new petrol and diesel car sales will come into effect.

Additionally, businesses involved in The Climate Group’s EV100 initiative have collectively rolled out more than 169,000 EVs, with 89,000 having been rolled out in 2020 alone.

More than 100 businesses are now members of EV100. The scheme’s aim is to help make zero-emission transport “the new normal” by 2030 and most businesses commit to delivering fully electric fleets. Big-name supporters include Unilever, Sky, Coca-Cola European Partners, BT and Ikea.

Collectively, these companies have deployed 169,000 EVs to date, with more than half of vehicle deployments having taken place during 2020. The Climate Group has forecasted that, if all members fulfill their commitments, they will collectively roll out more than 4.8 million EVs by the end of the decade.

The report reveals that more than half of EV100 members are using 100% renewable electricity for charging, procured either through a tariff, a power purchase agreement (PPA) or by onsite generation.

Moreover, member firms have collectively pledged to install 6,500 new charging locations by 2030. Less than half of this number had been confirmed as of the end of 2019. Some 2,100 of these charging locations have already been installed, totalling 16,900 individual chargers.

BT Group’s chief executive Philip Jansen said: “We have a real opportunity to create a low carbon society as we build back from the pandemic. BT Group is leading the way with Openreach as we transition our entire fleet (the UK’s second largest) to electric or zero-emissions by 2030. 

“At BT, we want to buy British but to do that we need to be confident that the supply of vehicles, components and charging points to keep our vans on the road will be sufficient. This needs to be a team effort with Government removing obstacles and helping take this to the next level.”

Energy Statistics

Renewables made up a 43.1% share of UK power generation in 2020, generating more electricity than fossil fuels in the year. This is the first time renewables have beat fossil fuels since the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) began publishing its Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES). Renewables’ share of the generation mix rose by 6.2 percentage points compared to 2019, with all renewable technologies – which includes bioenergy – seeing increases in generation shares in 2020. The largest of these was wind, which provided 24% of total power.

Sheffield Forgemasters

The Ministry of Defence is to buy Sheffield Forgemasters, saying that it intends to invest up to £400 million in the company for plant, equipment and infrastructure critical to the defence industry over the next decade. The purchase, for £2.56 million including debt, is to secure the supply of vital parts for the Royal Navy. Sheffield Forgemasters can trace its origins to the 1750s as a blacksmith’s forge. It became a full commercial enterprise in 1805. The takeover, which will preserve 600 jobs after the company cut 95 late last year, will go through next month after shareholders including Graham Honeyman, the former chief executive, and then business’s employees’ trust agreed to sell to the government. It will be run by its existing management. Steve Turner, assistant general secretary of the Unite union, said that the news would be “welcomed with a huge sigh of relief right across our steel communities” after his organisation had fought to protect UK steel supply.

Times 29th July 2021 read more »

The UK government has nationalised the defence manufacturer Sheffield Forgemasters to secure the supply of parts that are vital for the Royal Navy’s ships and submarines. The Ministry of Defence said it would spend £2.6m to acquire the whole of the company, and planned to invest as much as £400m over the next decade to replace critical equipment and infrastructure required for its military production capacity. Most of the companies capable of building the reactor pressure vessels for the UK’s nuclear submarines are located in potentially hostile countries such as Russia and China, as well as South Korea. US manufacturers are focusing on providing for their own navy’s vessels. Steve Hammell, the company’s chief financial officer, said it was hopeful of securing work on small modular reactors. Forgemasters has provided technical support to the consortium, led by Rolls-Royce, its largest customer. Rolls-Royce hopes to use the reactors in 16 small power stations around the UK. The project has not yet received the full go-ahead, but Hammell said it could be an opportunity for the company within five years. Hammell said the company also hoped to take advantage of the government’s desire to use more British steel in projects such as the enormous Dogger Bank offshore windfarm. Forgemasters will try to use its new government links to build the 150-tonne hub castings that sit at the centre of the huge turbines.

EDF and Nissan launch V2G charging solution for business fleets

EDF and Nissan have launched a new service for UK businesses that enables electric vehicle (EV) fleets to access vehicle-to-grid (V2G) charging technology.

According to EDF, the offering would enable fleet customers to save around £350 in energy cost savings annually

According to EDF, the offering would enable fleet customers to save around £350 in energy cost savings annually

Through its subsidiary DREEV, EDF has launched a commercial charging offering for businesses. It utilises V2G technology that allows for two-way energy flow; both recharging an EV’s battery when electricity is at its cheapest, and discharging excess energy to sell back into the grid.

The offering is available to businesses that have Nissan’s LEAF and e-NV200 models in their fleets, and includes the installation of a two-way connected compact 11kW charger. The charger can fully charge a Nissan LEAF, depending on the battery model, in just 3 hours and 30 minutes.

According to EDF, the offering would enable fleet customers to save around £350 in energy cost savings annually.

EDF’s interim head of EV projects Philip Valarino said: “Today’s announcement marks an important step on the UK’s journey towards electric mobility. By combining the expertise and capabilities of EDF, Nissan and Dreev we have produced a solution that could transform the EV market as we look to help the UK in its journey to achieve net-zero.

“Our hope is that forward-thinking businesses across the country will be persuaded to convert their traditional fleets to electric, providing them with both an environmental and economic advantage in an increasingly crowded market.”

Business benefits

Research published through a collaboration involving carmaker Nissan, energy giant E.ON and Imperial College London has outlined the economic and environmental benefits that can be delivered by a rollout of V2G technology.

Nissan and E.ON have been researching the technology through the e4Future project which is being funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV), in partnership with Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation.

Research from the collaborative project has found that accelerated widespread adoption of V2G through enabling government policies could unlock cost savings between £410m and £885m annually over the next decade. This would be delivered if the upfront capital and operational expenditure were offset through incentivising policies.

V2G is still an emerging area in the smart, flexible energy space, but the technology is rapidly gaining traction among businesses and policymakers.

Earlier this year, Ovo Energy and Cenex wrapped up a three-year trial of V2G charging technology at UK homes and revealed that the technology could help motorists reduce electricity bills by up to £725 per year.

The UK Government is investing £20m to support V2G projects as part of its ambition to ensure that EV drivers are never more than 30 miles from a charging point. Energy Networks Association – the industry body representing all major energy network operators in the UK –  has also updated its routemap to embed net-zero alignment, including V2G collaboration.

In the private sector, one of the latest announcements was from Nissan. The carmaker has installed 20 V2G chargers at its European Technical Centre in Cranfield, as it works to develop new ‘smart’ mobility packages for business customers. But uptake, in the UK at least, seems to be most pronounced in the public sector.

Nissan GB’s managing director Andrew Humberstone said: “Nissan has been a pioneer in 100% electric mobility since 2010, and the integration of electric vehicles into the company is at the heart of Nissan’s vision for intelligent mobility. The Nissan LEAF, with more than half a million units already sold worldwide – is the only model today to allow V2G two-way charging.

“As such, the Nissan LEAF offers new economic opportunities for businesses that no other electric vehicle does today. We are delighted to be working with EDF on the deployment and democratisation of V2G technology and in providing yet another reason for transport to electrify.”

UK Government exploring feasibility of ‘electric highways’ for zero-emission trucks

The Department for Transport (DfT) has awarded a share of £20m to a consortium of businesses that will explore how long-range trucks can be electrified using overhead wires on motorways across the country, to assist with the UK’s net-zero emissions target.

The proposed plan would use the Siemens Mobility ‘eHighway’ technology, which has been trialled on small road systems in Germany and Sweden

The proposed plan would use the Siemens Mobility ‘eHighway’ technology, which has been trialled on small road systems in Germany and Sweden

The funding has been awarded to an array of projects through Innovate UK, including to a business consortium that will deliver the UK’s first study on the electrification of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) through the creation of “electric highways”.

The consortium, awarded the funding as part of the Transport Decarbonisation Plan through Innovate UK, is proposing electric roads systems that would see battery-fitted trucks attaching to overhead wires on roads to run using electricity, similar to how rail and trolley-buses function.

The consortium consists of Siemens Mobility, Scania, Costain, The Centre for Sustainable Road Freight (Cambridge University and Heriot-Watt University), ARUP, Milne Research, SPL Powerlines, CI Planning, BOX ENERGI and Possible.

The proposed plan would use the Siemens Mobility ‘eHighway’ technology, which has been trialled on small road systems in Germany and Sweden. A nine-month study will explore the feasibility of this system and will look at electrifying at least 19 miles of the M180 as the pilot, linking Immingham Port with the logistics hubs of Doncaster and its airport.

Innovate UK’s innovation lead for zero-emission vehicles Alistair Barnes said: “We’re delighted that this consortium is bringing its extensive experience to solve challenges around decarbonising HGVs by planning to demonstrate this technology at scale on UK roads. Innovate UK is proud to be supporting this project as part of its partnership with the DfT.”

HGVs currently account for 18% of all road vehicle CO2 emissions, despite only representing 1.2% of the total number of vehicles on the road. They do, however, transport 98% of food, consumer and agricultural products across the country.

The consortium believes that a fully operational electric road system could create tens of thousands of jobs as around 200,000 new electric trucks would need to be built over the next 15 years. The consortium claims that an initial investment into these new vehicles could be recouped within 18 months, due to lower energy costs, and the electrification infrastructure would pay back investors in 15 years.

Any investment into electric highways would likely complement existing efforts to promote EVs for passenger vehicles, including through improved access to charging.

Earlier this month, Gridserve, the company behind the UK’s first “electric forecourt”, announced plans to launch a UK-wide network of rapid EV charging points. Overall, Gridserve is planning to invest £100m into the Electric Highway network through the new plans.

Gridserve revealed that it has already upgraded some 80 charging points across 50 locations since the acquisition. It is on track to upgrade chargers at a further 70+ locations by September, bringing the total to 150. Under Ecotricity, the chargers had been installed in proximity to motorways and in Ikea car parks.

In addition to retrofitting these existing locations, the firm, which has received investment from Hitachi Capital and The Rise Fund, is planning at least 50 ‘Electric Hubs’ with ultra-rapid chargers. At least 10 of the 50 Hubs should be completed by the end of 2021.

Roads rage

The announcement from the DfT arrives as green campaigners continue to contest the Government’s decision to spend £27.4bn on a second Road Investment Strategy (RIS2).

RIS2 was first announced at the 2020 Budget and plans were then formalised with Highways England in August 2020. While the Government has repeatedly claimed that it has properly accounted for the environmental impact of the projects set to be completed using the funding, green groups have continued to voice anger and disappointment.

The Transport Action Network (TAN) took the UK Government to the High Court over RIS2. Proceedings began in June and the crux of the argument was that RIS2 could jeopardise the UK’s ability to meet its Paris Agreement commitments or legally binding net-zero by 2050 target, given that the Department for Transport (DfT) did not “properly” measure or disclose the emissions impact of the Strategy.

This week, a judge has ruled that TAN does not have sufficient evidence that the DfT’s decision on the Strategy was “irrational, absent bad faith or manifest absurdity”. As such, the challenge on climate grounds is not robust enough.

Grid Capacity

Electric cars could cause “blackouts” if drivers don’t charge them at night, MPs have warned as they recommended VAT cuts to help motorists switch over. Ministers have been told the UK’s power grid will come under increasing strain as more drivers buy electric, unless they are convinced to plug-in at off-peak times. The Government has also been urged by MPs to prevent rural areas becoming electric vehicle “not spots” due to a lack of public charging points, and to make public charging as cheap as plugging in at home by reducing VAT. Huw Merriman MP, and the chairman of the transport committee, said: “Unless the National Grid gains more capacity, consumer behaviour will have to alter so that charging takes place when supply can meet the additional demand. The alternative will be blackouts in parts of the country.”

Dairy giants and UN to jointly plot global course to net-zero by 2050

A swathe of businesses, research hubs and other organisations within the livestock and dairy sectors are supporting a new UN-backed initiative plotting a course to net-zero emissions.

The dairy sector accounts for around 3% of annual global emissions - a similar proportion to aviation

The dairy sector accounts for around 3% of annual global emissions – a similar proportion to aviation

Announced at the UN’s pre-summit for the Food Systems Summit, which is taking place in Rome this week, the new initiative is called ‘Pathways to Dairy Net-Zero’. It is convening businesses, NGOs, researchers, scientists and academia in the joint development of a new roadmap to net-zero by 2050 at the latest, to be adopted globally in the dairy and livestock sectors.

Commitments will be developed for “every area of the dairy community”, covering not only carbon but other greenhouse gases (GHGs) including methane.

A press statement regarding the new initiative states that the organisers are exploring a reduction in methane emissions of 24-27% by 2050 and a reduction in nitrous oxide emissions by 26% within the same timeframe, with these figures based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) landmark report in 2018.

As for CO2, the statement indicates that it may be possible for the sector to reduce emissions by up to 40% simply by improving productivity and resource use efficiency. Action in other areas, such as nature restoration and decarbonising equipment, could drive further progress.

The Pathways to Dairy Net-Zero initiative will also develop methodologies, tools and pathways to delivering against these new targets, and regularly report on progress. More information is set to be unveiled at the UN’s Food Systems Summit in September and then at COP26 in November.

Research has already begun to develop the targets and pathways, which will be context-specific depending on geographical region and the nature of the dairy value chain.

“Although there is a wide variety of production systems globally, there are opportunities for all to reduce GHG emission intensity,” the press statement reads. The global dairy sector notably reduced emissions intensity by 11% between 2010 and 2019, while increasing milk production by 30%. However, absolute emissions will now need to be decreased rapidly. As of 2015, dairy accounted for around 3.4% of the world’s annual GHG emissions.

The Global Dairy Platform, which is spearheading Pathways to Dairy Net-Zero, claims that “there is no other climate effort of its size and scope in agriculture”.

Other organisations involved in developing and delivering the scheme include the International Dairy Federation, Dairy Sustainability Framework, SAI Platform, the International Farm Comparison Network (IFCN), the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation. Additionally, the Global Research Alliance (GRA) has been selected as the scheme’s ‘knowledge partner’.

“Our initial analysis suggests that wider use of existing greenhouse gas mitigation technologies will make an important impact in reducing dairy’s emissions in the short term, while the development of new innovations takes place,” the GRA’s special representative Hayden Montgomery said. “This initiative may ultimately act as a blueprint for other livestock sectors.”

A snapshot of consumer attitudes

Earlier this summer, Kerry Group, which owns dairy, taste and nutrition brands, released the results of a major survey of 14,000 consumers across 18 countries, polling them on their attitudes to environmental sustainability when choosing food.

On a global basis, half of the respondents said they consider the sustainability of food and drink when making any purchase, but Kerry Group found that concern about personal health and direct impacts were a larger priority than tackling global issues including climate change. For example, commonly-cited priorities included local sourcing, organic products, locally sourced products and nutritional value.

British respondents were more sustainability-minded than the global average. Almost two-thirds (64%) of the UK-based respondents said they are “strongly influenced” by sustainability-related factors and claims when choosing food or beverages at the supermarket, with 58% saying they are “strongly influenced” when choosing at food-to-go outlets or dining at cafes, work canteens and restaurants.

When Kerry Group looked at which age group was most engaged with the issue, the answer was older millennials – those born between 1980 and 1989.
