Demand for CO2-reduced steel from thyssenkrupp is continuing to rise. CD Wälzholz from Hagen will in the future use high-precision hot strip made of climat -friendly steel from thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg for the production of special materials. The Waelzholz Group and thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg have signed a memorandum of understanding for the supply of climate-friendly bluemint® Steel from 2023 onward. Waelzholz, a long-standing strategic partner of thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg, uses high-precision hot strip for the production of cold-rolled special materials for high-quality applications in the automotive, energy and industrial sectors. The quantities of CO2-reduced steel purchased by Waelzholz are set to increase step by step up to 2030. The steel will be supplied by thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg as unpickled and pickled precision strip in the entire product range and up to a width of 720 mm. With bluemint Steel, thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg is already offering steel products with around 70% lower CO2 intensity. Waelzholz, a family-owned SME, produces high-quality cold-rolled steel strip and profiles for customers from the automotive or industrial sector as well as the energy and capital goods sectors. At locations in Europe, North and South America, and in Asia, the technology leader with 2,300 employees produces 780,000 metric tons of high-quality steel materials annually. Waelzholz has set up an ambitious Green Steel Roadmap with various projects to drastically reduce the CO2 emissions of its own products and production. Since the largest part of Waelzholz's carbon footprint is caused by emissions from the input stock chain, it is crucial for the company to reduce this CO2 content.
