Cleveland-Cliffs seeks federal funding from US DOE

Cleveland-Cliffs wants to capture up to 2.8 million tons of carbon dioxide from blast furnace gas released at its Burns Harbor steel plant in northwest Indiana and on Lake Michigan. It would have a net carbon capture efficiency of “at least” 95%. Cliffs has asked the U.S. Department of Energy to pay for half of its next research phase with funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

According to the department, Cliffs has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2030 and reduce its energy intensity by 10%.

Through both the infrastructure bill and Inflation Reduction Act, the U.S. Government is investing heavily in carbon capture and storage technologies to combat climate change.
