The Environmental Court in Umeå has given a go-ahead on the permissibility of H2 Green Steel’s five million tonne steel plant to be established in Boden Sweden. This means they can start ground works at the site already during the summer.
In a statement, the company said, “We are very grateful for the dialogue with the different parties involved in the permit process so far. It has not gone by without challenges, however, when hurdles have come, we have worked constructively together to solve them.”
As part of its decision, the court has presented a few conditions for the permissibility which are expected and are a result of the discussions in the public hearing in the Environmental Court 8-9 June.
H2 Green Steel is now looking forward to starting preparatory works at site already within the next two weeks and are also busy planning for the next phase of the permit which they hope can take place towards the end of this year.
