Hydrogen in Industries

Made of steel for green steel.

Process description

Hydrogen can not only reduce CO2 emissions, it is also considered an effective chemical reducing agent.

As such, it is used in metallurgy, for example. In steel production, direct reduction plants can be operated with (green) hydrogen. The result is no longer liquid pig iron but a solid sponge iron which is refined into crude steel in an electric arc furnace. The reduction of metal ores using hydrogen is particularly suitable for metals such as copper for electrical engineering, which require a particularly high degree of purity.

In addition, carbon capture and storage play a key role in reducing emissions in the steel industry. This involves the capture of carbon dioxide and subsequent storage.


  • Handling blast furnace gas, oxygen and hydrogen.
  • Flammable, toxic and abrasive media.
  • BAM-approval.


High-quality valves from KLINGER Schöneberg support the entire steel production process in order to achieve the emission targets. Depending on pressure and temperature, the valves are designed to be soft-sealing, metal-sealing or PEEK-sealing.
