Fluence Awarded €3.9M Contract for Innovative Wastewater-to-Energy System in Belgium

Corporation Limited (ASX:FLC) announced today that it has received a
€3.9M contract for a wastewater treatment and waste-to-energy system for
its customer ArcelorMittal. Fluence will design and build these systems
for ArcelorMittal’s steel mill in Ghent, Belgium, using innovative
anaerobic digestion technology to produce biogas from off-gas
fermentation byproducts. The Fluence system is expected to be delivered,
installed and operational onsite within 18 months. ArcelorMittal is the
world’s largest crude steel producer, accounting for 90 million tons of
steel per year.

This will be Fluence’s first wastewater and waste-to-energy system
designed specifically for use in the steel industry. Steel mill
byproducts are notoriously difficult to treat to a grade that meets
government effluent requirements. Fluence’s team was able to achieve the
client’s desired effluent using advanced anaerobic digestion technology.
By adding waste-to-energy treatment to the system, the biogas produced
will be used to power the steel mill’s operations, which will in turn
lower the overall operating costs.

Fluence’s Managing Director and CEO, Henry Charrabé said: “Our highly
experienced team has adapted our advanced anaerobic digestion technology
for this new application, bringing even more value to our customers. We
hope this milestone project will be the beginning of introducing
Fluence’s capabilities for similar steel mill applications around the
world. As part of our global product strategy, we have already sold a
number of anaerobic systems developed by Fluence Italy in Europe and
South America, including applications in the poultry and fish processing

Carl De Maré, Vice President of Technology Strategy at ArcelorMittal,
said: “We are excited that after several years of research and
engineering, we are now progressing with the largest project of its kind
within the ArcelorMittal group. This is the first application of a
viable new business case where re-use of carbon is possible at large
scale. We will achieve significant carbon reduction and we hope that
this will lead us to a lower carbon economy. This new Carbon Smart
technology illustrates ArcelorMittal’s commitment to transforming steel
production and it will also further strengthen steel’s standing in the
circular economy, particularly compared to other higher carbon metals
like aluminum.”
