Decarbonising ArcelorMittal’s Spanish operations21 July 2021
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed on 13 July 2021 between ArcelorMittal and the Spanish government demonstrates mutual intent to work together towards a decarbonised Spanish economy – a necessity for industries such as steel to successfully transition to carbon neutrality. As a result, new manufacturing processes at ArcelorMittal’s Spanish operations will include a new direct reduced iron (DRI) unit and electric arc furnace (EAF) installation in Gijón that will reduce carbon emissions at ArcelorMittal’s Spanish operations by approximately 50%. The DRI installation in Gijón will also enable ArcelorMittal Sestao to become the world’s first full-scale zero carbon emissions* steel plant.Corporate News
Introducing ArcelorMittal’s XCarb™ recycled and renewably produced
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 the carbon footprint of ArcelorMittal and of our customers.
The XCarb™ recycled and renewably produced initiative
One of the first initiatives from ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products is XCarb™ recycled and renewably produced.
The label is applied to our steels produced with 100 per cent recycled content and using energy which only comes from renewable sources. Steel produced by ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products under our XCarb™ recycled and renewably produced label is audited and certified by an independent third-party.
Purchasing our XCarb™ recycled and renewably produced steel allows you to reduce the global CO2 footprint of your projects, products, and finished goods. To calculate the total CO2 impact of your products, our customers can use the figures reported in the EPD - they are independently certified by a third-party.
