Pioneering the Green Transition with Digital Twin Technology

The European Green Deal is a set of policies proposed by the European Commission with the overarching goal of making the European Union climate neutral by 2050. It was launched in December 2019 as the EU’s roadmap to a sustainable and environmentally friendly future. The goal is to transform Europe into a modern, resource efficient and competitive economy with no net emissions of greenhouse gases.

At the heart of the EU Green Deal lies a commitment to reducing emissions and enhancing resource efficiency, a mission that resonates deeply with CELSA Group‘s dedication to sustainability. The CELSA Group has integrated into its DNA a sustainable production model that allows it to position itself as a key agent of the ecological and just transition. Our non-conformity, one of the most deeply rooted values ​​in the Group, has led us to set ourselves a great challenge: to become a Net Positive company by 2050. The Green Deal sets forth objectives guiding the industry’s twin green and digital transition, and the TWINGHY project stands as a beacon for this transformative journey.

TWINGHY represents a marriage of cutting-edge technology and environmental stewardship, harnessing the power of Digital Twin technology to optimize the utilization of hydrogen. By using Digital Twins, we unlock invaluable insights derived from trials of different hydrogen blends, allowing us to fine-tune project parameters such as refractory materials, energy consumption and steel surface quality.

At CELSA Group, innovation serves a purpose to drive positive change and pave the way for a sustainable future. Through TWINGHY, we not only embrace digital transition but do so with a clear focus on maximizing efficiency and minimizing environmental impact.

Join us as we embark on this journey towards a greener, more sustainable tomorrow. Together, let’s shape the future of steel production, one innovation at a time.
