HYBRIT which is a partnership between SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall, produced zero emission steel that was delivered to Volvo Cars. With this move, Volvo have become the first company to purchase "fossil-free steel," manufactured with green hydrogen, for use in its vehicles.

The traditional process of making a car have a significant amount of CO2 emissions at various stages in production. Fossil-free steel could cut some of those greenhouse gas emissions.

Fossil-free steel is manufactured using a renewable process - rather than being made from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas - which emits fewer greenhouse gases into the environment.

Green hydrogen it’s going to be one of the key fuels that will make possible mass decarbonization within hard-to-abate sectors, such as steel manufacturing. With this step a transition to a greener sector is expected to be done faster.
