    voestalpine supplies first CO2-reduced premium steel

    greentec steel is voestalpine’s ambitious phased plan for the long-term decarbonization of steel production. As a first step, the Group is now offering a CO2-reduced Edition of all the flat steel products manufactured by its Steel Division in Linz. As a result of an innovative raw materials mix and even more efficient processes, the direct emissions generated during the manufacture of voestalpine’s greentec steel Edition products have been reduced by around 10 percent. We are currently processing several customer orders, and the signs are that there will be significant demand for sophisticated greentec steel Edition products such as hot-rolled steel strip, isovac electrical steel, and phs-ultraform.

    Groundbreaking ceremony for multi-million project at voestalpine in Linz

    voestalpine is investing EUR 188 million to build a new integrated pickling line in the cold rolling mill 3 (“BETA 3”) at the site in Linz. The fully automated pickling line with tandem cold mill meets the most stringent Industry 4.0 standards, further increasing the manufacturing quality of high and ultra-high strength steels for the automotive, household goods, and construction industry, as well as for electrical steel used in e-mobility. BETA 3 also sets new sustainability standards: hydrochloric acid takes the place of sulfuric acid for pickling of carbon steel qualities. The required acid is regenerated in a circulatory system using an on-site acid regeneration plant. Today marked the groundbreaking ceremony for the multi-million project; BETA 3 is scheduled to commence operation in late 2023. The plant will have an annual production capacity of around two million tons.

    voestalpine lightweight innovation: 20 years in the fast lane with “phs-ultraform”

    voestalpine lives and breathes innovation, a fact that the Group has proven many times over throughout the years. In 1949, the LD process was the “invention of the century” that instantly changed the global steel industry. And in recent decades, the international company has set new standards in automotive lightweight construction. When the idea of developing an ultralight, corrosion-resistant, yet high-strength “super steel” was first raised almost 20 years ago, it was considered to have little chance of success—yet not long ago, the 300 millionth phs component rolled off the production line. And most recently, the voestalpine invention that is now standard in modern car bodies was approved for series production by the world’s largest car manufacturer.
