One of the biggest challenges facing the global iron and steel industry is decarbonization.
Having the right solutions to reduce carbon, and doing it more economically, is going to be critical. Direct reduction, the focal point of our technology, is the best-proven method to make an immediate and dramatic reduction in the industry’s CO2 footprint.Environment, Health, and Safety Assurance
Our industry-leading technology is what gives us the edge in the market, but it’s our people who make that technology possible. It’s our people who create, improve, and sustain the products and services today and imagine the new technologies on the horizon. This is why we have been in business for over 50 years with plants operating in more than 20 countries.MIDREX® Plants
To love and serve others
Some might say this is a curious purpose for an iron-technology company, but we stand firmly by it. The work that we do is not easy, and the challenges we undertake to bring green technology to the world are significant. We are asking the brightest minds in their fields to join us in transforming an industry. That is big work. And big work requires a higher purpose. To love and serve others is about putting people first-in the world and in the workplace-so we never lose sight of why our technology matters.
