German service centre sources Greentec steel from voestalpine

German steel service centre EMW Stahl Service says it is joining voestalpine in efforts to expand the availability of CO2-reduced steel for the steel processing industry.

Starting this year, voestalpine Stahl will supply independent steel service centre EMW with its Greentec steel edition with a reduced carbon footprint, EMW tells Kallanish. “As one of Europe’s largest independent steel service centres, one of our ambitious goals is to achieve complete climate neutrality in Scope 1 and 2 by as soon as 2030,” says the German company’s managing director, Michael Mockenhaupt.

Voestalpine has already been offering all flat steel products from its Steel Division with a reduced carbon footprint. These include electrical steel strip, such as that used in wind turbines, and high-strength steels for lightweight automotive construction.

EMW, headquartered in Neunkirchen in North Rhine Westphalia’s Siegerland region, is a business unit of the globally active Schäfer Werke group and supplies coils, slit strips, blanks and circular blanks to the steel processing industry.
