The energy-intensive steel industry is turning to advanced automation to help drive more sustainable steel-making production. In this 3:08 YouTube video, How Emerson is Helping Drive the Green Steel Transition with Measurement Solutions in the Metals Industry, Emerson’s Sergei Mishin shares how advanced automation, including smart sensors and real-time operational analytics, enables greater energy efficiency and reliable performance.


Traditional steel manufacturing leads to high levels of emissions and pollution. But the future of the industry is Green. Let’s explore how advanced automation technology is helping operators transition to Green steel manufacturing and its importance in reducing environmental impact.

Green steel manufacturing refers to the process of producing steel while minimizing carbon emissions and environmental impacts. Traditional steel manufacturing is energy-intensive and produces substantial carbon dioxide emissions. Green steel aims to reduce this environmental footprint by employing cleaner energy sources and incorporating efficient production techniques.

Emerson, a leader in advanced automation technology, is at the forefront of helping drive this transition by utilizing digitally enabled, smarter plants. Emerson is helping customers achieve sustainable, high-quality production through direct reduced iron and electric arc furnace steel. This approach not only ensures environmental sustainability but also brings economic viability to the steel manufacturing industry.

Advanced automation technology plays a pivotal role in green steel manufacturing. Emerson utilizes smart sensors and real-time data analytics to monitor energy consumption and identify areas for improvement by analyzing this data. Energy usage can be optimized, waste can be reduced, and carbon emissions can be lowered. In addition, machine learning algorithms are employed to predict and prevent potential equipment failures, reducing downtime and improving overall productivity.

These automated systems make manufacturing more sustainable, enhance operational efficiency, and increase cost-effectiveness. Transition into green steel manufacturing offers several benefits. Firstly, it significantly reduces carbon emissions and environmental impact, aligning with global sustainability goals. Additionally, it improves energy efficiency, leading to cost savings. Lastly, the adoption of green steel manufacturing enhances the overall reputation of the steel industry, attracting environmentally conscious customers and investors.

Emerson’s advanced information technology is revolutionizing the steel industry, making it more sustainable while advancing operational efficiency and profitability by optimizing energy usage, reducing waste, and lowering carbon emissions. Emerson is helping pave the way for a greener future in your production.
