We have the ideas and products in steel needed to shape the future – hand-in-hand with you: lighter, stronger, offering even greater precision and even higher efficiency – and unerringly sustainable. How do we achieve this? Visit us at the fair - we will be pleased to explain it to you– in the form of successful existing applications and new, innovative products.
wire 2020 – the future needs steel
Steel is 100% recyclable, withstands extreme stresses and is highly versatile. These properties make it perfectly suited to cope with the challenges encountered in highly demanding sectors such as automotive, mechanical and plant engineering, and energy technology. At the wire 2020, we will be showcasing steel that has been sustainably produced and innovative products made in steel. Visit us – from 30 March to 3 April at the Messe Düsseldorf exhibition grounds, Hall 12, Stand C28.Arrange appointment now
Electric steelmaking: Less emissions – even today!
For no less than 25 years now, Georgsmarienhütte has been producing steel in the most sustainable way known: in the electric arc furnace. Electric steelmaking causes five times less CO2 than the BF-BOF steelmaking route. This equates to 26 million tonnes of CO2 saved so far. And every year signifies another million tonnes less. This means that, even today, we are playing our part – day in, day out – in reducing the emissions of the steel industry.
100% scrap charge, 100% sustainability
We produce steel from 100 percent scrap. As a comparison: the average scrap rate in the steel industry amounts to only 44 percent. This alone makes us a sustainability champion. The big advantage of steel scrap is that it is infinitely recyclable and that, every time it is recycled, its ecological footprint becomes smaller. EU-wide, steel scrap saves almost 160 million tonnes of CO2 every year.
Green electricity for green production
We are constantly striving to reduce our emissions. Here, our success largely depends on the type of energy we use: as soon as we are in a position to operate our facilities on green electricity, our emissions will decrease by another two thirds. The continuing expansion of an efficient infrastructure for green electricity and hydrogen in Europe thus plays a crucial role in achieving climate-neutral steel production.

Efficiency in mobility
Steel will continue to play a pivotal role in future automotive engineering. Even now, for example, we can produce components in our innovative steel grade 46MnVS5 that, despite their lower weight, withstand even higher in-service-stresses. At the wire 2020, we will be showing products that assure worldwide mobility – now and in the future.
