Build durable solar roofs with Granite® organic coated steels16 November 2022
With the demand for electricity growing rapidly, solar energy production via photovoltaic (PV) modules installed on roofs is becoming a solution of choice for developers.Prepainted steel roofing solutions are light, durable, and made from eco-friendly materials. They are also able to sustain the loads required for PV module installation. It's no wonder that installing solar PV systems on steel roofs is increasingly common.However, some precautions should be taken with PV modules, such as ensuring enough space between the module and the organic coated steel surface to enable water drainage and ventilation. With this condition fulfilled, prepainted steels are the preferred material for roofs with PV modules - whatever the type of building.Product news
Introducing ArcelorMittal’s XCarb® green steel certificates
XCarb® is the new brand name for ArcelorMittal’s ongoing global programme of steelmaking innovation targeted at carbon neutral steel by 2050. The initiatives that are part of XCarb® aim to reduce ArcelorMittal’s carbon footprint.
The XCarb® green steel certificate initiative
One of the first initiatives is XCarb® green steel certificates from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products. The certificates are issued by ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products and are based on CO2 savings which have been assured by DNV, an independent body. The savings are calculated in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol for Project Accounting.
Purchasing an XCarb® green steel certificate officially passes the CO2 savings achieved by ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products to our customer. This enables the customer to report a corresponding reduction in their Scope 3 CO2 emissions in accordance with the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard.
