ArcelorMittal Europe Long Products will present a wide range of products: from façade solutions to supporting structures and roof structures for photovoltaic systems at world's leading trade fair for the construction industry BAU, which takes place from 17 to 22 April in Munich in Germany. ArcelorMittal Europe Long Products Chief Marketing Officer Mr Tapas Rajderkar said "This year, our focus is on Sustainable Building with Steel. Reducing the CO2 footprint low-carbon steel plays an important role in the construction sector. Production methods are changing and the use of renewable energies and scrap are on the rise. As a durable, infinitely recyclable, but also very versatile material steel is suitable for any application in the construction industry. And it is an important material for the energy transition, because low-carbon steel is needed for wind power or photovoltaics.” With the Granite product family, ArcelorMittal offers a range of organically coated steels for building envelopes with more than 120 colors and textures that come with a warranty of up to 40 years. Since the beginning of the year, ArcelorMittal has been using a novel coating process one. The electric blasting technology for curing paints requires almost no solvents and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. For façade substructures, Solar mounting structures, but also for cable trays, composite floors and many other applications is Magnelis metallic coated steel three times more corrosion resistant than normal galvanized steel. Both products are available as XCarb recycled and produced from renewable sources. ArcelorMittal has, among other things, focused on the installation of photovoltaic modules specializes in roofs and presents its portfolio at BAU. Whether in the renovation of existing buildings or for new construction: The Ondatherm solar roof panel offers a simple and fast installation for photovoltaic systems is also robust and offers a high level of thermal insulation. For the assembly of the modules, customers and builders have various flexible solutions. ArcelorMittal will also present its solutions for load-bearing structures at BAU. The Cofraplus 80 composite ceiling profiles are approved as prefabricated steel slabs by the building authorities and have a significantly lower CO2 balance. For structural applications, HISTAR high-strength steels offer cost and material savings. The weather-resistant steel grade Arcorox with natural corrosion protection has a long service life and is already successfully used in bridge construction. At BAU, the focus will be on sustainability, circular economy and ArcelorMittal's XCarb range. It brings together all the Group's manufacturing processes, products, initiatives and innovation projects focused on Reduction of CO2 emissions. XCarb steel made from recycled and renewable material is used in electric arc furnace using 100% green electricity and up to 100% scrap, reducing the carbon footprint of steel buildings is significantly reduced. Emissions can be up to 300 kilograms of CO₂ per tonne, compared with more than two tons of conventionally produced steel. In the construction of an industrial hall, for example, recycled and steel produced with green electricity saves as many tons of CO₂ as the entire building envelope and the load-bearing structure required steel tonnage without changing the construction method or the established construction process become.
