With the Life Cycle Assessment services, we can provide you with a cradle-to-gate assessment for your Sandvik steel. This includes the global warming potential for everything from recycled materials and additional alloys, steelworks, melting, hot and cold working, transports, electricity, water use and more, until the product leaves the Sandvik gate.

Why it’s wise to choose Sandvik as your partner
