This actually is a Big Thing. Steel, produced without coal. You might not know this about me, but I actually sold steel as my first job and learned a lot about steel production at Mannesmann a long time ago.

@jwildeboer I honestly don't get what's so hard about it. Takes like 5min at 900C in H2

Got propaganda-ish rumblings that Dutch, and American "could do it". Dutch news even propagandized "iron powder" as an energy source.

Kindah think for them "we can't do it" and "it's a little more expensive" are the exact same thing to them.


@jasper the difference being that the hybrit group actually built a plant and is moving forward with production. There’s a difference between „we could do it too“ and „how many tonnes do you want to buy from us?“ ;)
