Of course, CO2 emissions in the production of steel are unavoidable. Nevertheless, steel is far from a climate killer, as the material is indispensable for the production of some of the largest CO2 savings such as wind turbines, geothermal energy or the weight reduction of cars. Taken as a whole, the CO2 balance of steel is therefore positive.
The steel industry is facing the challenge of reducing CO2 emissions in steel production to the minimum. For example, solar power is mainly used to save CO2 in energy terms.
So, if we look at CO2 emissions in steel production, the CO2 savings and the contribution of the steel industry to climate protection, innovative steels were already able to save six times as much CO2 as their production causes since 2007. Steel in times of climate protection? YES, PLEASE!
