Leading British supplier of pre-painted steels Benbow Steels has become the first ArcelorMittal customer in the United Kingdom to buy XCarb green steel certificates. Benbow Steels will make the certificates available to their final customers so they can reduce the Scope 3 emissions of their projects. The certificates will accompany Benbow Steels’ orders of organic coated steels from ArcelorMittal’s Granite HDX range. The pre-painted Granite HDX steels are typically supplied by Benbow Steels for a variety of applications including Construction and the HVAC industries.The XCarb initiative, launched by ArcelorMittal in March 2021, brings together all of ArcelorMittal’s reduced, low, and zero-carbon products and steelmaking activities. To produce XCarb recycled and renewably produced steel, ArcelorMittal uses up to 100% scrap and renewable electricity coming from renewable sources such as solar and wind power. ArcelorMittal estimates that XCarb recycled and renewably produced steel has a carbon footprint as low as 0.3 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of steel product when the metallics are 100% scrap, which is certified by a published Environmental Product Declaration.The ArcelorMittal’s XCarb initiatives also include XCarb green steel certificates which are specifically designed for ArcelorMittal’s steel products made from iron ore in a blast furnace. They are based on real CO2 savings as well as wider initiatives which reduce ArcelorMittal’s carbon footprint. We can add up these important CO2 savings and then pass them onto our customers in the form of a certificate, which has been verified by an independent auditor.
