GreenIron contributes to five of UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, the world heads of state and government adopted 17 global goals for sustainable development. The goals aim to eradicate poverty and halt climate change to create a fairer, more sustainable and better world.

The 193 UN member states committed themselves to achieve a more sustainable future for all by 2030. This makes Agenda 2030 the most ambitious plan – to create sustainable development – that the world has ever adopted.

For us, its highly motivating to state that GreenIron concretely contributes to achieving the UN´s sustainability development goals 9, 12 and 13 and indirectly to goals 6 and 17.

6. Clean water and sanitation

  • GreenIron´s technology can be used to recycle metal oxides from wastewater.

9. Promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation

  • GreenIron´s technology enables fossil-free production of iron and steel, as well as recycling of waste and residuals from both these industries.
  • GreenIron´s innovation supports expanded use in addition to the steel and iron industries. The technology can be used for a number of metal oxides, such as nickel, copper and molybdenum.

12. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

  • The input materials in GreenIron´s process are residual products and waste from steel mills, foundries, manufacturing industry, mining and from iron ore.
  • GreenIron´s technology enables a local circularity of residual products and secondary flows.
  • GreenIron´s technology enables the recycling of valuable metals from landfills, deposits and other waste sites.

13. Combat climate change

  • GreenIrons process is in itself a completely CO2-free solution.
  • GreenIron´s technology is based on the use of hydrogen. We will always target the use of non CO2-emitting sources of hydrogen.
  • GreenIron´s solution is small-scale and thus well suited for local establishment. This reduces the ancillary sources of CO2-emissions such as transport etc.

17. Global partnerships for the goals

  • GreenIron´s technology requires a low capital investment. This makes the solution affordable which enables a rapid global expansion across all economies.
  • GreenIron´s technology reduces landfills from both the steel and iron industry as well as mining, which helps to improve local environments.
  • GreenIron prioritises collaborations and partnerships with actors in order to allow for a wide adaptation of the emission free technology.
