European automotive supplier Mubea and German steelmaker Salzgitter Flachstahl have now signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a view to cooperating more closely on the topics and issues of sustainable steel production, green steel product processing and steel recycling with closed loops. The lightweight design specialist based in Attendorn, Germany, plans to increase its use of green steel products considerably in the years ahead. In addition, Mubea is pursuing very ambitious sustainability goals and has committed to reducing its own emissions by at least 25% through to 2025.Mubea is therefore also focused on Salzgitter AG’s SALCOS, SAlzgitter Low CO2Steelmaking transformation program. As from the end of 2025, the Salzgitter Group plans to incrementally switch its production of steel to hydrogen-based processes, with the aim of achieving production that is virtually carbon neutral as from 2033. Moreover, the Salzgitter Group is already producing low CO2 steel products via a scrap-based process route in electric arc furnaces.Mubea is a long-standing partner of Salzgitter Flachstahl and, for more than 20 years, has sourced deliveries of high-grade strip steel products that it subsequently processes further, mainly for the automotive industry.
