Klöckner & Co and the Salzgitter Group have joined forces to raise the bar for green steel availability in the market. This partnership marks a significant milestone in the journey towards a sustainable and environmentally friendly steel industry.
The Salzgitter Group will commence the delivery of CO₂ reduced steel, produced through their innovative SALCOS® production route using hydrogen, to Becker Stahl-Service GmbH, a subsidiary of Klöckner & Co, starting from the end of 2025. This breakthrough will contribute to a substantial increase in the volume of green steel accessible to customers.
Guido Kerkhoff, the CEO of Klöckner & Co SE, expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating that it would greatly enhance the availability of green steel for their customers and further strengthen the renowned Nexigen® brand offerings.
The Nexigen® umbrella brand encompasses Klöckner & Co's range of CO₂reduced steel and metal solutions, which are transparently combined to provide customers with reliable and sustainable value chains.
