The Central Government will fund research on carbon capture and utilisation, use of green hydrogen and converting a coal-based boiler to a gas-based during the current fiscal. This financial support will come through a scheme for funding research and development projects to address common issues of the iron & steel sector, an official statement said Wednesday. Projects under the scheme aim to make the steel industry efficient by encouraging the development of technology while increasing efficiency and reducing emissions. These R&D project proposals will come in joint collaborative mode from academic institutions, research laboratories and steel companies. These proposals are likely to help reduce heat loss in the blast furnace, when molten slag is cooled from 1500 C to ambient temperature. Reducing CO2 emissions by capturing carbon and utilisation and reducing hazardous emissions by converting coal-based boilers to a gas-based one is also expected to be studied.
