Global stainless steel giant Outokumpu’s emission minimized stainless steel gaining share in the industry after cooperation with European steel distributor Klöckner & Co. Outokumpu is starting cooperation with Klöckner & Co, one of the largest producer-independent distributors of steel and metal products, by delivering the first coil made of emission-minimized stainless steel. From 2023 onwards, the companies intend to supply larger quantities of the product.Outokumpu has ambitious targets in terms of sustainability and is further shaping the stainless steel market by setting a new benchmark with its Circle Green product line, launched in June 2022. Outokumpu’s Circle Green is classified in the best, so-called ‘Prime’ category in Klöckner & Co's new categorization for stainless steel. By this collaboration, Klöckner & Co will be able to significantly expand its portfolio of CO2-reduced materials, services, and logistics under the new umbrella brand Nexigen.Outokumpu’s Circle Green production was the first of its kind globally, as no other stainless steel manufacturer has been able to produce stainless steel with such low emission levels when taking into account all the climate emissions from raw material extraction through the whole production chain. Circle Green is available today and will contribute to further decarbonizing the industry sector.
