Ternium has signed a new deal with Gás Verde in Brazil to buy biomethane supplies from a landfill for making steel in Río de Janeiro. It’s the first manufacturer to use this renewable gas fuel in Latin America, allowing it to scale back the use of fossil natural gas.
Head of Tecpetrol’s Energy Transition division, he shares the progress the team has made in helping to decarbonize the Techint Group industrial activities and the many opportunities and challenges he foresees for the next steps.
The company has developed its first wind farm in Argentina, and Techint E&C is building it to supply 50% of the electricity demand at Tenaris’ Industrial Center in Campana. Four wind turbine generators have already been installed. Ternium will also invest to build another wind farm to source electricity for its Argentine operations.
