energy concepts | mobility of the future | Smart energy | Sustainability and climate protection | Urbanization | Car journeys, air travel and shipping are an integral part of our globalized world, but they also pose a threat to our climate. Alternative fuels made from biomass or based on hydrogen offer promising solutions for the mobility dilemma: with the right technologies, they are climate-neutrally producible and thus a great hope for the energy turnaround.

energy concepts | innovation | Smart energy | Sustainability and climate protection | In order to achieve the Paris Agreement climate targets, we must significantly increase the share of renewable energies. By 2030, for example, 65 percent of our gross electricity consumption is to come from renewable energies – today this figure is only 37.8 percent. So there are still a few challenges to overcome before we can look back with pride on a successful energy turnaround. These three technologies could help us close the impending supply gap.

Sustainability and climate protection | Worth knowing | The sustainable design of packaging is a major challenge – and the unpackaged movement is gaining ground, and rightly so. But it doesn’t always have to be like this: with environmentally friendly packaging materials, we can do a lot for our planet. As part of “Recycle Week,” we present tinplate, one of the most sustainable packaging materials in the world.

energy concepts | future of production | Sustainability and climate protection | To make steel production more sustainable, thyssenkrupp is already working on promising hydrogen-based technologies. Because the production of hydrogen requires a lot of electricity, the expansion of renewable energies is a decisive factor for large-scale industrial implementation. During her visit to our Duisburg steel site, Germany’s Federal Research Minister Anja Karliczek pointed out that this challenge could only be met by working together. She was impressed by thyssenkrupp’s two-pillar strategy for green steel.
