Contribute to environmental issues with innovative steel manufacturing technology

We focus on realizing carbon neutral and highly effective use of ore resources on the pyrometallurgical process such as ironmaking, recycle process of non-ferrous materials, nickel smelting, and so on. Basic researches on the ironmaking are by hydrogen reduction and carbon recycling processes because these processes do not emit CO2. We also conduct research on manufacturing technology for porous metals, the development of their applications, and the development of self-healing materials.
