STEP BY STEP TO SUSTAINABLE STEEL PRODUCTION
The transition to CO2-neutral steel production will not happen overnight. That's why we will be taking smaller steps along the way as we get closer to our ultimate goal: Climate-neutral steel production by 2050. Our path is clearly marked. And now we will follow it all the way to the end, together with you.
COURAGE FOR CHANGE, PASSION FOR IMPROVEMENT
The green revolution in steel production at our company has a catchy name: greentec steel.
This is tried and tested voestalpine premium quality with a reduced carbon footprint that makes no compromises in processing and applications.
Consistent research in recent years and investments worth billions of euros have driven significant changes at voestalpine, and we are now reaping the rewards of our commitment with a modern and sustainable product portfolio.
EACH STEP TAKES US CLOSER TO OUR GOAL: CLIMATE NEUTRALITY
It's a long road, but even the longest journey begins with a first step. At voestalpine, we have developed a three-step plan that will bring us safely and sustainably to our final goal: Carbon-neutral steel production by 2050.
BRIDGES TO EVEN MORE SUSTAINABLE SHORES
Complete transitions in technology cannot be accomplished overnight. Our intensive research at voestalpine will ultimately lead to our success.
CO2 reduction is possible now, too. In addition to liquid hot metal and scrap, we use HBI or hot-briquetted iron, a type of direct-reducted iron pressed into briquetts. In the DRI process, iron ore is produced with natrual gas rather than coke - and in the future, hydrogen will be used.
We also produce our own green hydrogen in our H2Future plant, of course using electric power that comes exclusively from renewable sources.
This is how we build one bridge after the other and gradually pave the way to a green future.
ACHIEVEMENT OF MAJOR CLIMATE PROTECTION TARGETS
The international climate and environmental protection targets are a daunting challenge for energy-intensive industries such as steelmaking, but we accept the challenge. We offer our customers the opportunity to achieve a positive ecological footprint by using voestalpine steel products. By further reducing CO2 emissions, greentec steel edition products contribute to a more favorable environmental balance in production without compromising quality.
A GREEN PORTFOLIO FULL OF SUSTAINABILITY
We have talked a lot about our challenges, targets and visions for the future, and even a lot more. But the greentec steel edition is no longer a dream. It is a reality: Discover voestalpine premium quality with a reduced carbon footprint in our product portfolio.
