With high commitment towards sustainability, SSAB and Volvo Trucks announced earlier this year on 1 June the delivery plan for the world's first ever truck with fossil-free steel. For the first version, SSAB fossil-free steel will be utilized to build the truck's frame rails which form the backbone of the vehicle, holding all main components together. Upon further testing and prototyping, more fossil-free steel will be applied to other parts of the vehicles with greater availability of fossil-free steel supply.SSAB and Volvo Group have been in collaboration on fossil-free steel since 2021. It is also in that year that SSAB became the first steel manufacturer who successfully produced steel from sponge iron reduced by hydrogen gas and delivered the materials to Volvo Group. Subsequently, Volvo Group made the first attempt to test and integrate the high-quality, environmentally friendly material into its production, manufacturing the first load carrier made of fossil-free steel.The partnership was taken to a new level as SSAB and Volvo Group embarked on a more ambitious project to design and create a fossil-free steel truck, and the initiative was completed after just 9 months. The green material is manufactured by Swedish steel company SSAB. The steel is made with a new technology based on hydrogen, a clean fuel made from renewables. The material is poised to complement the traditional and recycled steel used in Volvo's trucks as the company joins the global movement to fight against climate change.
