EMW Stahl Service and ArcelorMittal are going hand in hand on the path towards decarbonization. Starting this year, ArcelorMittal Germany will provide the steel service center from Neunkirchen in the Siegerland region with low-emission steel and certificates for CO2 savings. As part of their climate strategies, the two companies will expand their partnership in 2023. EMW receives from ArcelorMittal Commercial Germany steel of the umbrella brand XCarb with low carbon content. EMW, in turn, will pass on the steel to its customers and end users with CO2 savings due to production. The XCarb recycles and renewables steels are produced on the basis of scrap (70%) and renewable electricity (100%). The reduced CO2 footprint is confirmed by an official Environmental Product Declaration. CO2 emissions per tonne At 797 kg per ton of steel, steel is only about one third compared to the same steel product, which is conventionally was produced in the blast furnace with 2.57 tons of CO2 per ton of steel. ArcelorMittal offers EMW XCarb steel in the desired quantities and also provides technical support. In addition to the physically supplied steel, EMW will continue to produce steel with XCarb Green Steel certificates from ArcelorMittal and thus demonstrably document the CO2 reduction. The CO2 reduction in these certificates is 2.11 tons of CO2 per ton of steel and comes from groundbreaking projects on blast furnaces. The CO2 savings are based on a central account mass balance and independently verified. EMW aims to be climate-neutral in Scope 1 and 2 by 2030, ArcelorMittal aims to achieve reduction of CO2 emissions by 35% by 2030 and the Group wants to achieve climate-neutral production worldwide by 2050. EMW is a steel service center within the globally active Schäfer Group and supplies coils, slit strips, Blanks and blanks for the steel processing industry. The Siegerländer already offer an extensive range of low-CO2 steels. For its customers in the processing industry, EMW accepts, among other things, Magnelis flat steels from ArcelorMittal, which coats on both sides, is particularly resistant to corrosion and versatile are.
