What is Green Steel?

Whether in transportation, infrastructure, energy, mechanical engineering or automotive, steel has been one of the most important materials for centuries. Not least because steel is the only material that is 100% recyclable, making it a prime example of a circular economy.

Our Green Steel production

Processing 2 million tons of steel scrap per year makes us a relevant recycling company in our production countries. Our Swiss Green Steel is produced by recycling steel scrap and reprocessing it using low carbon and renewable energy. Thanks to our expertise in recycling, electric arc furnace technology and the highest operating standards, we have been able to reduce the carbon footprint of our products to well below the industry average.
