RECTIFI Partnership

Paving the way towards net-zero for the UK’s carbon-intensive foundation industries

RECTIFI is a ground-breaking project that brings together the steel, cement and recycling industries, promising to avoid almost 5 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent from entering the earth’s atmosphere a year.

The partners will build a brand-new circular supply chain, developing high-quality grades of recycled steel for the production of low carbon impact ‘green steel’. They will also develop sustainable mineral-rich alternatives for the production of cement, utilising materials such as glass, concrete and other mineral fractions that are separated during the steel recycling process.

“RECTIFI highlights how the solution to two of the biggest challenges facing the UK – how to decarbonise the steel and cement industries – is now within reach.”
