thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe is revolutionizing the renewable energy sector by supplying CO₂ reduced steel to König, a renowned manufacturer of solar installation mounting systems. This partnership aims to promote sustainable power generation through the use of environmentally friendly materials.Solar energy plays a crucial role in the global transition to cleaner energy sources. While solar plants produce no harmful emissions during operation, their production phase contributes to CO₂ emissions. thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe is determined to minimize these emissions by providing CO₂-reduced steel to König for the production of solar mounting systems starting in May 2023.To ensure an efficient expansion of solar energy, it is essential to reduce the energy amortization time associated with production processes. thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe, based in Lower Saxony, leverages its expertise to deliver customized, CO₂-reduced slit strips, along with meticulous documentation of the steel's CO₂ footprint from production to delivery. The steel used is the bluemint® recycled grade from thyssenkrupp Steel Europe, produced in Duisburg, offering a remarkable 64% reduction in CO2 intensity for solar profiles. König will incorporate this CO₂-reduced steel into their solutions for sustainable planning and construction in drywall applications.Meiko Fiedler, the Managing Director of thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe, expresses satisfaction in providing customers with an environmentally friendly solution for the production of special profiles using CO₂-reduced steel. State-of-the-art profiling equipment ensures precise and efficient production, resulting in stable, durable, and reliable solar mounting systems that enable customers to adopt a sustainable approach and reduce their environmental footprint.thyssenkrupp Materials Services employs a Certified Product Carbon Footprint Calculator, endorsed by the international classification society DNV, to calculate the exact CO₂ emissions of each supplied product, from production to delivery. This transparency enables the identification of greenhouse gas impacts throughout the supply chain, empowering König and its partners to optimize their value creation processes for maximum sustainability.
