Innovative industrial transformation of the steel and chemical industries of Europe

Project description

Innovative symbiotic process for urea production

Urea is widely used as a nitrogen-release fertiliser in agriculture but also in many industrial sectors. The EU-funded INITIATE project advances an innovative symbiotic process to generate urea NH3 from steel residual gases. This innovation will considerably reduce primary energy intensity, carbon footprint, raw material intensity and waste production. The project relies on a consortium consisting of the full value chain, including major steel and urea industries, multidisciplinary researchers, functional material suppliers and experienced promoters of symbiosis issues. It will develop a commercial implementation roadmap to ensure commercial production and implementation of the system and similar symbiotic systems. The reliability of the process will be assessed and validated on a regional and European level by advanced dynamic modelling and life-cycle assessment in line with ISO 14404 guidelines.
