Decarbonizing Steel Production: Metso Outotec launches next Generation of the 100% hydrogen-based Circored Process for fine Ore Reduction

Finding new solutions to decarbonize the steelmaking value chain is a must for the industry to become fossil-free and to help limit global warming to 1.5°C. To support the efforts, Metso Outotec is introducing the next generation of its CircoredTM process for the direct reduction of iron ore fines. The game-changing process uses hydrogen as a reducing agent instead of CO produced from fossil fuels, allowing the iron and steel industry to efficiently tackle the decarbonization challenge. Circored is part of Metso Outotec’s Planet Positive portfolio.

SNC-Lavalin wins pre-project Engineering Services Contract for potential CANDU new Build in Romania


Candu Energy Inc., a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group (TSX: SNC), has won a 12-month, $8.4 million contract from Romanian firm, EnergoNuclear S.A., to provide engineering services during the preparatory stage of a precursor project to complete CANDU Units 3 & 4 in Romania.

‘’The potential to develop two new build nuclear reactors demonstrates that the Romanian government, along with several other of our public sector clients around the world, recognize that safe, reliable, affordable, low-carbon nuclear energy is how we will combat and ultimately, win the battle against climate change,’’ said Ian L. Edwards, President and CEO of SNC-Lavalin.

This contract follows the signing of an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between Romania and the United States in 2020, as well as a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in August 2021 between Romania and Canada to strengthen and further develop the cooperation in nuclear energy civil projects and builds on the 55-year relationship between the two countries in developing nuclear projects.

“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Romania, Societatea Nationala Nuclearelectrica (SNN), EnergoNuclear S.A. and our US partners for this potential new build project. Romania is familiar with CANDU technology since its first two CANDU units came online in 1996 and 2007 and have been providing reliable power ever since,” said Sandy Taylor, President, Nuclear. “Expanding their nuclear footprint would help Romania meet its net zero carbon commitments.”
