The next step towards a climate-neutral future – starting in 2023, Waelzholz will source climate-friendly high-precision hot rolled steel strip for the production of its high-quality steel materials from its long-standing partners thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg and thyssenkrupp Steel.
Waelzholz increasingly relying on low-emission steel from thyssenkrupp in the future
Waelzholz has signed memorandums of understanding with two of its long-time partners – thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg and thyssenkrupp Steel – for the long-term supply of low-emission bluemint® Steel. The agreements call for Waelzholz to be supplied with increasing quantities of the material, which has an up to 70 percent lower carbon intensity, through 2030. Hence, Waelzholz and its partners are laying the foundations for a long-term and forward-looking supply relationship involving climate-friendly steel grades.
A complete range of grades is becoming climate-friendly
Waelzholz uses high-precision hot rolled steel strip from thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg and thyssenkrupp Steel to produce high-quality cold rolled special materials for applications in the automotive, energy, and industrial sectors. Therefore, the technology leader will source unpickled and pickled hot rolled precision strip in its entire product range and with a width of up to 720 mm made from low-carbon emission steel from thyssenkrupp Hohenlimburg. Thyssenkrupp Steel will deliver the climate-friendly raw material as wide strip and electrical steel strip.
