ArcelorMittal has launched new low-emission steel pipe in Europe, with up to 75% less CO2 equivalent, Kallanish learns from the company.
ArcelorMittal Europe say its Tubular Products division is able to manufacture and offer the first low-carbon-emission hollow sections made from the company’s recycled and renewable XCarb steel. It uses a high percentage of scrap and 100% renewable electricity. The electricity used comes from renewable sources, such as wind and solar, and is supplied through a recognised guarantee-of-origin system.
To calculate the total CO2 impact of the company’s low-carbon steel pipes, customers can use the figures provided in the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). EPDs are publicly available documents based on a lifecycle assessment methodology and independently certified by a third party.
The pipe solutions aim to help companies in the construction, agriculture and energy sectors on their path to decarbonisation, to meet the climate targets set out in the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal.
ArcelorMittal Europe – Tubular Products claims to be the region’s largest manufacturer of steel tubes, producing at 15 sites in Europe.
