Welcome to TransZeroWaste
Growing demand for high quality iron ores and scrap as well as abandonment of carbon intensive sintering in the future require novel technological approaches for upgrading of low-grade iron ores and recycling of mill scale.
The development of these technologies will be supported by environmental (using life cycle assessment – LCA – methodology and circularity evaluation) and economic indicators (using life cycle costing – LCC – methodology) to identify the most suitable design options and ensure the improvement of sustainability performances compared to the current technologies.
The outcomes of the TransZeroWaste could contribute to the upgrade of 27 million t/a materials and to the avoided greenhouse gas emissions of sinter plants, corresponding to 4,3 to 9,9 Mt CO2/a.

Scientists & Researchers
During the 3rd online Consortium Meeting the progress of TransZeroWaste project will be discussed. All partners are attending and will present their work packages’ progress.
The European Steel Technology Platform (ESTEP) Spring Dissemination Event 2023 took place in-person on 29 & 30 March 2023 at the Aula Magna of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (SSSA) in Pisa, Italy. TransZeroWaste project was presented by Gerald Stubbe (BFI) during the SESSION 2: Clean Steel Partnership Projects.
