Towards zero carbon steel – an insight for the bridge sector

Reducing embodied carbon in steel for bridges requires an understanding of the manufacturing process, its relationship and effects on steel products and supply chains, and how to interpret supporting data.  This presentation gives insight into where the carbon is in steel making, how decarbonisation will align with the Paris Agreement, making sense of EPD and what solutions are available today for bridge owners and designers.
