Tenaris’ seamless mill in Romania actively participates in company’s global strategy to reduce carbon dioxide emissions generated by its activities. More environmentally friendly transportation solutions were identified after Tenaris signed a partnership agreement with LKW Walter, a market leader in the intermodal transportation segment. As a result, Tenaris products are shipped to customers in Germany, Belgium, Great Britain and other European destinations by using a combination of trucks and rail freight. Intermodal transportation has three important advantages over trucking: it reduces CO2 emissions, allows a higher load and gives Tenaris more flexibility in the process of loading finished products in its plant through shared trailers. Tenaris’s mill in Romania managed in a short time to get 25% of its finished products volumes to be transported intelligently, reducing CO2 emissions generated by trucking by 50%.
Tenaris has recently announced a medium-term plan to reduce the CO2 emissions intensity per ton of steel by 30% by year 2030. Reviewing current processes to improve their long-term environmental performance is one of the components of the strategy. Transportation is the last link in the supply chain through which the products reach customers and a significant contributor to CO2 emissions.
