Our Editor In Chief had a conversation with him.
Derived from the Latin word “Levitas” which means “lightness,” the term levitation indicates the rising or lifting of a person or thing by unnatural means. It is the process by which an object is held aloft, in a stable position, without mechanical support or physical contact. Magnetic levitation trains, or maglev trains, are high-speed AI-enhanced trains that move by gliding above dedicated magnetic guideways without making any contact with the tracks. Maglev technology represents the realization of the 21st-century engineering vision of high-speed, magnetically propelled vehicles that can move from one place to another, without the maintenance and safety concerns associated with traditional railroads.
The development of renewable energy infrastructure, such as wind turbines, as well as industries like construction, the automotive industry, and consumer goods will depend on green steel, which is a key enabler for the green transition. By 2030, there will be a 50M tonne demand for decarbonized steel in Europe alone, which is almost a third of the current demand.
On the similar lines, Norway-based Blastr Green Steel has announced that it will invest €4B in a steel plant in Inkoo, Finland, where it will begin operating by the end of 2026 and become a significant user of green energy. The manufacturing facility will have a green hydrogen production unit that will be powered primarily by wind energy.
During the COP27 climate summit, host country Egypt signed eight agreements to develop greenhydrogen. Among the announcements, one of the largest was an agreement with Fortescue Future Industries to build 7.6GW of renewable energy, which has the potential to produce 330 kilo-tonnes of green hydrogen annually. Green hydrogen is just one of the materials required for the transition towards green steel. Others include low-emission iron-containing materials (metallic charges) such as scrap steel and green hydrogen-based direct reduced iron (DRI) and hot briquetted iron (HBI). These essential raw materials and abundant sources of renewable energy are not available worldwide. The
One of the primary forces behind industrialization has been the use of metals. Steel has traditionally occupied a top spot among metals. Steel production and consumption are frequently seen as measures of a country’s economic development because it is both a raw material and an intermediary product. Therefore, it would not be an exaggeration to argue that the steel sector has always been at the forefront of industrial progress and that it is the foundation of any economy. The Indian steel industry is classified into three categories – major producers, main producers and secondary producers.
