ArcelorMittal wanted to find solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its iron oxide pellet production processes. As a result, it decided to replace some of the fuel oil it uses in its Port-Cartier facilities with pyrolytic oil, a biofuel made from logging waste.
By combining two of the Côte-Nord's major natural resources—iron ore and wood—this local, carbon-neutral biofuel project is generating a great deal of enthusiasm in the community as well as very significant benefits. First, the project directly creates several dozen quality jobs and is also providing an outlet for forestry professionals who have had limited options for managing their wood waste.
This project marks the beginning of ArcelorMittal's energy transition in Port-Cartier and is a crucial step in converting the plant into a greener facility.
