HYBRIT Development AB is a joint venture company between SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall located in Stockholm, Sweden. By using hydrogen instead of coke and coal when manufacturing steel, the ambition is to create a process that emits water instead of carbon dioxide. The initiative was announced in spring 2016 and a joint venture company was formed one year later. Research will continue until 2035. If this initiative is successful, HYBRIT will make a major contribution to a fossil-free Sweden.
