Swedish steel maker and prime mover in the area of green steel SSAB is to deliver fossil-free steel to leading provider of cargo and load handling solutions Cargotec. Cargotec plans to use the fossil-free steel in their cargo handling equipment. SSAB and Cargotec have agreed to work together on the introduction of fossil-free steel to the cargo handling industry. The companies will start coordinated development toward the use of SSAB’s fossil-free steel in Cargotec’s cargo handling equipment. This is a strategic partnership for the benefit of both parties and end users. It represents a significant milestone in moving toward a sustainable development and a fossil-free product offering.This is the fifth announcement by SSAB for development & supply of green steel in recent timesApril - Volvo Plans to Produce Trucks Made from Hydrogen Steel from SSABJune - Volvo Cars to Explore Using Fossil Free Steel with SSABSeptember - SSAB to Deliver Fossil Free Steel to Mercedes-BenSeptember - SSAB to Supply Fossil Free Steel to Faurecia for Automotive SeatsIn 2026, SSAB plans to supply the market with fossil-free steel at a commercial scale after a conversion of its Oxelosund blast furnaces into an electric arc furnace and by using HYBRIT technology, which replaces coking coal traditionally needed for iron ore-based steelmaking, with fossil-free electricity and hydrogen. This process virtually eliminates carbon dioxide-emissions in steel production.SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall created HYBRIT, Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology, in 2016, with the aim of developing a technology for fossil-free iron- and steelmaking. In July, SSAB Oxelosund rolled the first fossil-free steel produced using HYBRIT technology, i.e., reduced by 100% fossil-free hydrogen instead of coal and coke, with good results.
