LKAB is an international high-tech mining and mineral group that mines and processes northern Sweden’s unique iron ore for the global steel market. Sustainability is the core of our business, and our ambition is to be one of the most innovative, resource-efficient and responsible mining companies in the sector. The group had sales of about SEK 31 billion in 2019 and employs about 4,300 people in 12 countries. Other group business include industrial minerals, drilling systems, rail transport, rockwork services and property management.

LKAB´s six iron ore pelletising plants consumes totally about 2 TWh/year of fuel energy. Most of the combustion related work is focused on fuel alternatives/fuel flexibility, combustion technology and NOx-mitigation for our pelletising plants. In this area we are also currently heavily involved in the HYBRIT-project with the aim to have a completely fossil-free process for steel making by 2035.
