EN-Corporate-News-2021-Tata Steel Netherlands accelerates plans to significantly reduce dust and odour emissions from IJmuiden steelworks
Tata Steel in the Netherlands today announced a speeding up of a €300 million package of planned measures with the objective of significantly reducing dust and odour emissions from its IJmuiden site in the next two years.
Tata Steel aims to accelerate its ‘Roadmap Plus’ plans to complete a number of projects in 2023, with a new facility – designed to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions – planned to be operational in 2025.

EN-Corporate-News-2021-Next phase of project to decarbonise industry in South Wales receives funding
Phase Two of the project involves engineering studies to explore the routes to decarbonisation, including the use and production of a hydrogen supply, carbon capture usage and storage (CCUS) and CO2 shipping from South Wales which would be the first CO2 shipping industry in the whole of the UK, and would create an entire new industry for the region.
Responsible sourcing is fast becoming a critical issue for the construction sector and its wider sustainability agenda. Construction clients need to be confident that their sustainable approach is supported by the construction products that they use.
As the first steel manufacturer to become an approved Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) programme operator, Tata Steel now have the ability to create product specific EPDs that comply with EN 15804 and ISO 14025 standards.
Being able to supply product specific Type III externally verified EPDs, along with BES 6001 responsible sourcing certification, enables us to help our construction supply chains to accrue points, under building certification schemes such as LEED and BREEAM, on their building projects.

The announcement of Roadmap+, which will also combat industrial odours and dust pollution at IJmuiden, coincides with the publication today of a progress report on Tata Steel’s Roadmap 2030 sustainability program involving 25 projects to enhance the company’s environmental performance.
As part of the €300 million Roadmap+ program, Tata Steel Netherlands will work closely with local authority and government leaders in the Province of Noord Holland to ensure the measures exceed environmental laws.
Tata Steel has launched plans for a project to capture CO2 from its blast furnaces in IJmuiden, Netherlands, and transport it for storage in empty gas fields under the North Sea.
The project would lead to a 30% reduction of CO2 from the steelmaking site.
