This actually is a Big Thing. Steel, produced without coal. You might not know this about me, but I actually sold steel as my first job and learned a lot about steel production at Mannesmann a long time ago.

@jwildeboer I honestly don't get what's so hard about it. Takes like 5min at 900C in H2

Got propaganda-ish rumblings that Dutch, and American "could do it". Dutch news even propagandized "iron powder" as an energy source.

Kindah think for them "we can't do it" and "it's a little more expensive" are the exact same thing to them.


@jwildeboer of course they may not be able to compete. Which means they cannot take that action.

However, even then, there is an action they could take, which is consistently argue that the CO2 emissions cost must be drastically increased. (which would flip around the economics.)
