Swedish clean steel pioneer SSAB will start supplying commercial volumes of fossil-free steel to the market in 2026, when also SSAB’s subsidiary Tibnor will be ready to distribute it to customers across the Nordics. SSAB is not changing its basic strategy, however, and the Nordic home market will continue to be an important cornerstone. Tibnor is an important distribution channel on this market for small and medium-sized construction and industrial enterprises. SSAB’s steel accounts for around half of Tibnor’s deliveries to customers.Steel is one of the most important materials in modern society but unfortunately, it is also one of the largest sources of carbon dioxide emissions. SSAB wants to change this, and so is developing completely fossil-free steel, which the company plans to launch commercially in 2026. This premium steel will be made using hydrogen-reduced iron in a process where the by-product is water instead of carbon dioxide.
