OPTIMISING EXSISTING ASSETS
We are working on numerous projects to make reductions in CO2 emissions and are focused on optimising existing assets. For example, Tata Steel UK has:
  • Switched to 100% renewable energy at our Shotton site in North Wales, reducing CO2 emissions at the site by 16%.
  • Installed electric ovens to replace natural gas burners at our Port Talbot site
  • Invested in a new electricity generating turbine at our Port Talbot power plant which reduces CO2 emissions by more than 50,000 tonnes every year.

COMPANY-WIDE DECARBONISATION
The launch of the Tata Steel Zero CO2 Logistics Framework is driving decarbonisation throughout all aspects of Tata Steel UK.

We have invested £37 million in a new 30-megawatt electricity-generating turbine at Port Talbot. This reduces CO2 emissions by more than 50,000 tonnes every year.

We have also launched a pilot decarbonisation programme which converts waste gases into raw materials for other industries.
