Adapting to climate change with the help of ArcelorMittal steel19 November 2020
The construction of the New Slussen is one of the largest urban transformation projects in Sweden. The original Slussen, built in 1642, is the lock that separates the sea from the fresh water of Lake Mälaren. Working in collaboration with the City of Stockholm, the 12 Billion SEK project seeks to create a dynamic urban quarter, responding to its historic context and transforming the city centre.One important function for New Slussen is to reduce the threat of flooding and protect the drinking water for two million people in Mälardalen. And that is where ArcelorMittal comes in...
ArcelorMittal Europe to produce ’green steel’ starting in 202015 October 2020
ArcelorMittal Europe announces details of the CO2 technology strategy that will enable it to offer its first green steel solutions to customers this year (30 000 tonnes), scale up this offering in coming years (to reach 120 000 tonnes in 2021 and 600 000 tonnes by 2022), deliver its 30% CO2 emissions target by 2030, and achieve net zero by 2050.
1500 solar panels for Industeel supported by Magnelis®25 August 2020
Despite the challenges of COVID-19 on our daily and professional lives, some projects have continued and have even been successfully completed these past months. Since March 2020, Industeel's site in Charleroi, Belgium has been equipped with 1512 photovoltaic panels on its roof. The green electricity generated will allow Industeel to produce cost-efficient steel while reducing its CO2 footprint. The panels have been fixed on a steel structure coated with Magnelis®.
Ateliers 3S - Downtown chic with Granite®17 November 2020
Ateliers 3S create contemporary looks for urban areas with ArcelorMittal organic coated steels. Bacacier is a leading supplier of steel roofing, cladding, and flooring applications for industrial and commercial buildings in France. In 2012, the company created a new entity – Ateliers 3S – to work closely with architects who were building or refurbishing buildings in the centres of cities around Europe. Using organic coated steels from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products, Ateliers 3S have developed a range of signature products specifically for the urban environment. One of the latest is the New York® range which allows architects to play with shapes and shades using a ‘toolbox’ of solutions.
Steels for solar energy generation systems3 November 2020
Solar photovoltaic plants are designed to last at least 20 to 25 years. They are built in various climates (tropical, industrial, etc.), locations (sea shores, islands, etc.), or geological soils (including the most aggressive).
Taking car parks to the next level with Magnelis®27 October 2020
Demand for convenient car parking is rising dramatically. However, the land available for parking is severely limited in many locations. This is making multi-storey car parks a very attractive option in city centres, near transport hubs, and at public buildings such as hospitals. To meet this demand in a cost-effective way, Kingspan, a leading building materials company, has developed a complete portfolio of solutions for car park builders. A key element is Magnelis® from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products which Kingspan uses to form the deck of each level in the car park. As well as cost-effective forming and quick assembly, Magnelis® offers long-term protection against corrosion to ensure the safety and viability of parking structures.

Performance and capacity of composite mega columns with encased hot rolled steel sections
The optimisation of construction materials, including the size reduction of structural system components, is fundamental in the modern construction of high-rise buildings. Composite structural components consisting of concrete and steel are a sustainable solution. This research paper investigates the use of composite mega columns, with hot-rolled steel sections fixed in concrete, as vertical structural systems. Tests were conducted to explore maximum capacity, displacements, stress distribution, ductility, and stiffness, culminating in suggested simplified design methods based on European, Chinese, and American codes.
