Brazilian slab producer Ternium Brazil said it is using biomethane as an alternative fuel to run its mill in Santa Cruz, Rio de Janeiro state, the company said.

Ternium acquired the slab mill from ThyssenKrupp in 2017 for EUR 1.5 billion. The mill was known as Companhia Siderurgica do Atlantico (CSA).

Ternium said the slab mill in Brazil will replece about 30 percent of the natural gas it uses for biomethane.

The biomethane will be used for steelmaking, and will supply the mill’s steelworks, blast furnace, coking and sintering unit areas. Ternium said Ternium Brazil will be the first Brazilian steelmaker to use the product.

The biomethane will be produced out of waste plant known as Seropédica, Ternium said.
