Steel is one of the few materials that offers a 100 percent closed recycling loop. This means that it can be used again and again efficiently, without any loss of its properties or performance – and without the creation of hazardous waste. Steel is also easy to re-purpose and reuse, and emits less CO2 during its production than other common building materials like aluminium.

At SSAB, approximately 20% recycled scrap metal is used in conjunction with steel production in Sweden and Finland, and 100% in the US. This makes the total average across all product sites approximately 45%.

Steel is also preferable to other metals when it comes to building. Many governments prohibit the use of non-ferrous metals like zinc and copper in buildings due to the risk of soil contamination when these metals are washed into the ground by rain.

Already today, SSAB’s blast furnaces emit 7% less CO2 than the EU average. Through our joint technology initiative HYBRIT, we aim to virtually eliminate all CO2 emissions in steel making.
