greentec steel Products

greentec steel Edition

With greentec steel we are pursuing an ambitious step-by-step plan for the long-term decarbonization of steel production. As a first step, we already offer all flat steel products produced by the Steel Division based in Linz in a CO₂-reduced version (greentec steel Edition). This includes electrical steel, which is used in wind turbines, and high-tensile steels for lightweight automotive construction.

The CO₂ reduction is achieved by adapting the manufacturing process; for example, coke is partially replaced by hydrogen-containing reducing agents. The emissions savings are recorded and collected as CO₂ credits in a "CO₂ balance account". The CO₂ savings achieved in the production process and the current status of the balance account are validated externally and confirmed with a certificate.
