The SSAB strip-rolling facility in Borlänge, Sweden produces heavy steel scrap as a by-product of converting steel slabs into coils and plates of cold- and hot-rolled high-strength steel. The heavy steel scrap was collected at the mill and loaded into a railroad gondola wagon — a heavy-duty, open-top car. The train would then take the scrap to SSAB’s mill in Luleå, in northern Sweden, to be recycled into new steel slabs.
