More sustainable steels
SSAB’s vision is to create a stronger, lighter, and more sustainable world through our advanced steels and steelmaking processes.
SSAB’s blast furnace-based steelmaking is among the most CO2-efficient in the world: approximately 6% more efficient than the average European steel mill and up to 17% more efficient than the Chinese average.
In addition, our advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) are stronger than ordinary steels, meaning:
SSAB and its HYBRIT partners are world leaders in using hydrogen (instead of coking coal) for iron ore reduction, virtually eliminating the major source of CO2 emissions in the steelmaking process. Already, companies are producing prototypes using SSAB fossil-free steel from our pilot plant. And in 2026, SSAB will offer fossil-free steels in commercial quantities in select grades.
