LKAB are aiming to be the first company in the world to produce 100% carbon dioxide free iron. Our hydrogen-based reduction technology is being developed in partnership with SSAB and Vattenfall under the name Hybrit Development AB. We have built a hydrogen reduction pilot plant in Luleå where our R&D is taking place and we are right now heavily focusing to develop and construct our first large scale production plant in Gällivare.

The first plant will produce 1,3Mton of Iron annually by 2027 with a need of more than 70 000 ton H2/year. In total, by 2045, the capacity will be over 20Mton of DRI with a hydrogen need of more than one million tons of hydrogen. The challenge is vast and therefore we need to strengthen our hydrogen production skills.

The department for Technology & Energy with its new section Energy & Hydrogen has the mission to organize and develop a team with energy and hydrogen competence needed to transform LKAB from conventional production methods of iron oxide, using fossil fuels. To our future production of iron, using hydrogen.

If you want to contribute to this, if you want to work with something new in one of Swedens most innovative industries, in a region with the most beautiful landscapes, this job is for you!
