Schneider Electric will use ArcelorMittal’s XCarb low-carbon-emission products for its automation systems, electrical cabinets and enclosures, Kallanish notes.
This steel is made in the Spain-based Sestao plant by the electric arc furnace method using recycled scrap and 100% renewable electricity.
“Our XCarb steel will be used by Schneider Electric to manufacture their new PanelSeT SFN floor-standing enclosures built to protect large electrical panels for industrial automation, power distribution and electronic applications,” ArcelorMittal explains.
The supply is part of the company’s efforts on sustainability and reducing CO2 emissions. Schneider Electric’s commitment is to be net-zero-ready across its operations, with a 25% carbon reduction target across its entire value chain by 2030.
The company estimates to increase by 50% the volume of low-carbon materials used in its products as part of the ongoing 2021-2025 sustainability impact programme.
