Reducing agents

Sustainable conservation of resources 

In the past few years, voestalpine has established itself as a regular customer to the end-of-life plastics industry.

Implementation of these raw materials makes a contribution to the conservation of primary energy sources such as natural gas and coke.

End-of-life plastics

voestalpine operates the world's largest plant dedicated to the injection of plastics into the blast furnace.

It has been possible since the year 2007 to inject 220,000 tons of plastic as an alternative reducing agent. In order to meet a variety of different requirements, end-of-life plastics are injected in the form of pellets, agglomerates or granulates

Several years of positive vendor relationships are the foundation for success in implementing this technology.
