Pyro Green-Gas, a subsidiary of PyroGenesis Canada (TSX:PYR), has signed C$1.3 million in new contracts with a global steel company based in India.

The client, whose name is being withheld for competitive reasons, posted more than US$20 billion in 2023 revenue, marking the second billion-dollar client the subsidiary is doing business with in India.

Pyro Green-Gas will develop and supply technology to desulphurize and clean the gas released during metallurgical coke production from coal. The coke will then be used in blast furnaces to make steel, while the cleaned gas will be converted into marketable hydrogen.

The steel industry accounts for 7-9 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, making it the industrial material with the most detrimental environmental impact. Pyro Green-Gas’ efforts to lower emissions in this area are aligned with PyroGenesis’ three-tiered solution ecosystem to capitalize on the economic drivers of global heavy industry. Coke oven gas cleaning solutions fall under the energy transition & emissions reduction tier, where fuel switching using PyroGenesis’ electric plasma torches, and gas cleaning and conversion technologies, help heavy industry reduce its environmental impact.

Leadership insights

“This announcement highlights our organization’s continued commitment to providing sustainable solutions for heavy industry, this time via our wholly owned subsidiary’s coke oven gas cleaning and purification solution,” P. Peter Pascali, president and chief executive officer of PyroGenesis, said in a statement.

“Given the size and breadth of the industry’s emission reduction requirements, steelmaking is a primary focus/target area for such advancements,” he added. “By leveraging factory-ready technologies, our goal is to become a world leader in facilitating heavy-industry’s transition towards more environmentally friendly practices, while at the same time recognizing their unique operational requirements.”
