Sustainable housebuilding: thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe supplies profile manufacturer Gebhardt-Stahl with CO2-reduced bluemint steel

  • Processing specialist launches new product carbon footprint calculator for the first time on the market

  • Full transparency on CO2e footprint from production to delivery 

House construction has great potential to protect the climate. According to UN estimates, the construction and building sector causes 38% of global CO2 emissions. In addition to the use of energy, the choice of materials plays a key role. This is exactly where the Gebhardt-Stahl company comes in: The expert for steel profiles from Werl relies on the expertise of thyssenkrupp - and has thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe supply it with customized, CO2e-reduced slit strip. In addition, thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe calculates the exact CO2e footprint of the material from production to delivery for its customer. 

The bluemint® recycled starting material from thyssenkrupp Steel Europe is of particular importance in this project: Thanks to modified input materials, the product can show a reduction in CO2e emissions of over 60%. In addition, the steel is characterized by a high recycled content. The reduced value of the starting material's CO2 emissions as a result of the more environmentally friendly production is incorporated in the model for calculating the Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) at thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe, which is unique on the market to date.

thyssenkrupp Materials Trading and Rock Tech Lithium Inc. agree on a partnership for the supply of raw materials for Europe's first lithium converter and the purchase of battery-grade lithium hydroxide

The raw materials supplier thyssenkrupp Materials Trading GmbH and the German-Canadian clean-tech company Rock Tech Lithium Inc. have signed a memorandum of understanding on the supply of spodumene concentrate, i.e. rock containing lithium. The mineral spodumene is one of the most important raw materials needed for the production of lithium-ion batteries, which are used in electric cars, for example. For this, the raw material spodumene must be refined into lithium hydroxide, which can then be supplied to cathode manufacturers for the battery industry worldwide. Cathodes and anodes are essential components of battery cells, without which the current would not flow. Rock Tech Lithium Inc. will process the spodumene concentrate into battery-grade lithium hydroxide in the first converter in Europe, which is scheduled to come on stream in Guben, Brandenburg, in 2024.
