Not long from now, wind turbines can be fossil free

And there is more to this than meets the eye. Wind power is fossil free, but wind turbines are made of steel. For every tonne of steel produced, almost two tonnes* of CO2 are emitted as well. One or two wind turbine might not make much of a difference. But think of all the wind turbines across the globe.

Go fossil-free

Change is on its way

SSAB is taking the lead in decarbonizing the steel industry. Together with our partners LKAB and Vattenfall we have come up with HYBRIT, a new revolutionary way to produce steel without emitting CO2. With HYBRIT, we aim to be the first steel company in the world to bring fossil-free steel to the market already in 2026. By 2045, we will be practically fossil free!

Our goal is to reduce Sweden’s CO2 emissions by 10% and Finland’s by 7%.*

Building a sustainable future with fossil-free steel

The global challenge of halting and reversing current rates of climate change is urgent. The steel industry has the potential to play a significant role in reducing carbon dioxide emissions both in the production phase and by supporting current rates of recycling.

Why fossil-free steel?

A growing global population, an increasingly higher standard of living and greater urbanization will trigger a rise in global steel demand. Recycled scrap will not sufficiently meet the growing demand for new steel. The carbon footprint in the steel industry is thus a challenge for the world.

We are all part of this journey

The core of SSAB’s business is to develop and produce steel that is stronger and more durable than ordinary steels. By using our steel, companies all over the world can already reduce their environmental footprint by producing and using lighter steel products. With the introduction of fossil-free steel in 2026, our customers – and their customers – can be part of a fossil-free value-chain and drive their business towards a more sustainable world.

Watch us go 100% fossil free
