US Steel Corporation and the US Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory plan to test polymer membrane technology to capture carbon emissions generated by steelmaking operations at the company’s Edgar Thomson Plant located in Braddock, Pennsylvania, according to the company’s statement.

Compared to other separation technologies, polymer membranes offer a comparatively simple carbon separation process, resulting in potential cost savings.

The unit is scheduled to be installed in early 2025. The field test will run for approximately six months.

US Steel aims to achieve net-zero by 2050.
