Salzgitter AG, one of Germany's leading steel and technology groups, is working closely with its customers to achieve defined climate targets.
In line with the company's strategic mission of 'Partnering for Transformation', Salzgitter Flachstahl has recently concluded an agreement with EMW Stahl Service GmbH for the supply of a specified quantity of 'green' steel produced under the 'SALCOS' low C02 transformation programme.
EMW Stahl Service GmbH, one of the largest independent steel service centres in Europe, intends to increase its sales of green steel products over the coming years.
From the end of 2025, the Salzgitter Group will gradually convert its steel production to hydrogen-based processes. The goal is to achieve virtually C02-free production from 2033.
"As one of the largest independent steel service centres, we are delighted to announce the supply agreement concluded with our long-standing partner Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH."Michael Mockenhaupt, managing director, EMW.
"As one of the largest independent steel service centres, we are delighted to announce the supply agreement concluded with our long-standing partner Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH. This represents an important step for us in expanding our product portfolio in the area of C02-reduced steel. In addition to our own numerous measures, this is another building block towards achieving greater sustainability. In this context, we as the Schäfer Werke Group, to which EMW belongs, have set ourselves the goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2030," Michael Mockenhaupt, managing director of EMW stated.
EMW Stahl Service GmbH has been a Salzgitter customer for many years and has expressed strong interest from an early stage in purchasing low C02 steel produced at Salzgitter Flachstahl.
Phillip Meiser, sales director at Salzgitter Flachstahl, commented: "EMW is a reliable partner, and we are very pleased that we have now been able to conclude a partnering agreement at this year's Euroblech."
Meiser said that EMW is strongly committed to assuming a pioneering role when it comes to environmental protection issues. He said that the collaboration shows that Salzgitter customers understand that SALCOS can help them achieve their sustainability goals. "Consequently, they perceive added value in our transformation to green steel. The markets for these products are becoming more and more established, driven above all by our strong and long-standing partners," he concluded.
