Sustainable steel - impacting the entire value chain
To be an innovative business partner for our customers we aim to include sustainability in every aspect of our business. For us, that means integrating sustainability throughout the entire value chain – from research to final product.
Our commitment to sustainable business starts in our own integrated production system. We build our operations on true circularity by optimizing the raw material added to each melt in our steel mill and with a very high amount of recycled steel.
“Today we’re on average at 84 percent secondary raw material in the process. This is a super high number. I would say it is a world-class number. But we are striving for 90 percent,” says Per Ragnar Moberg, Purchasing Manager.
To optimize our own operations and to attain an even more efficient and sustainable steel production process we are constantly looking for ways to improve our processes and our use of resources.
“We’re working with leading AI researchers and using artificial intelligence to be able to better determine the actual distribution of compositions in our recycled material. Then we can increase the proportion of recycled material,” explains Magnus Josefsson, Manager Raw Material Optimization.
