In the realm of metallurgical evolution, a significant stride towards sustainability and ecological harmony has been undertaken. On the 17th of August 2023, a symphony of collaboration resonates as Knauf Interfer Cold Rolling and thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg , two titans in the steel domain, inscribe their intentions through a Memorandum of Understanding. This accord heralds the commencement of a new era in steel procurement, one characterized by reduced carbon footprints and a commitment to environmental stewardship.The initiative, slated to unfurl from 2023, is a multi-faceted endeavor. In its initial phase, the orchestration entails the provisioning of Knauf Interfer Group's Cold Rolling plant with steel that embodies the ethos of sustainability. This innovation involves employing reprocessed scraps, ushering forth steel products bearing a considerably diminished CO₂ impact, christened as bluemintÒ recycled.Progressing further into the timeline, an enhanced chapter emerges. By the conclusion of 2026, Knauf Interfer shall forge a partnership with bluemintÒ Steel, a product lineage born through the Direct Reduction process and nurtured by the application of green hydrogen, denoted as DRA/SAF. This dynamic approach to steel production ensures that the carbon footprint associated with steel fabrication is drastically reduced, ushering in a dawn of ecological harmony.The impact of these efforts resonates profoundly. In comparison to conventional hot-rolled steel, bluemintÒ recycled mitigates CO₂ emissions by approximately 60%, across diverse grades and dimensions. Knauf Interfer's innovation extends beyond the mere realm of steel production, infiltrating the intricate web of CO₂ accounting, positioning itself as a torchbearer in the realms of Scope 3 categorization.The machinations behind this transformation are orchestrated by the Business Unit Steel, housing Knauf Interfer Cold Rolling GmbH. A triad of efficiency, a trimodal logistics system, and strategic geographical positioning, form the backbone of this metamorphosis. Through these intricate mechanisms, green steel flows seamlessly from production to consumer, bridging the divide between metallurgy and ecology.
