The starting point of environmental protection is the preservation of the human environment and its health. In order to be more sustainable, the burden on the environment must be minimized, with the goal of adapting production to the requirements of environmental protection.

Energy is an important production factor in the iron and steel industry, so special attention is paid to specific energy savings. The need for renewable energies and limited resources leads to the development of new concepts.

At the Chair of Metallurgy of Iron and Steel, research is being done to reduce CO2 emissions and particulate matter emissions as well as the use of hydrogen in metallurgy.
