Green steel offering from Voestalpine

Austrian steelmaker Voestalpine, a globally leading steel and technology group, is now offering a CO2-reduced edition of all flat steel products manufactured by the company's steel division in Linz, Austria.

The company claims that the direct emissions generated during the manufacture of its greentec steel Edition products have been reduced by around 10% as a result of 'an innovative raw materials mix and even more efficient processes'.

According to voestalpine, several customer orders are currently being processed and, it is claimed, there are signs that there will be significant demand for 'greentec steel edition' products going forward, especially as hot-rolled steel strip, isobar electrical steel and phs-ultraform.

Herbert Eibensteiner, CEO of Voestalpine, said that the company is currently working at full speed at its Linz and Donawitz sites 'to develop technical scenarios which will drive forward the decarbonization of steel production'.

"By manufacturing and supplying CO2-reduced steel, we have achieved an important first milestone on the path to green steel production by 2050," continues Herbert Eibensteiner, CEO of Voestalpine AG
