Electric steelmaking: Our key technology

We continuously further develop what is the most sustainable technology for the steel industry.

For more than 25 years, we have been producing steel at our site in Georgsmarienhütte in the most sustainable way there is: in an electric arc furnace. As a result, we save over one million tonnes of CO2 every year and are now just as much a pioneer in the industry as we were in 1994.

Efficient use of waste heat

We use the waste heat from our operations for steelmaking, for heating buildings, and for hot water preparation. This covers a large part of our energy requirements and, in turn, saves several tonnes of emissions. We also feed the waste heat into the district heating network for the regional public utilities. For this, our Georgsmarienhütte GmbH has been honoured by the German Energy Agency (dena) as a “beacon of energy-efficient waste heat utilisation”.
