„Pure” stands for the high quality of our steel, which is already helping advance the energy and mobility transition. “Pure” also stands for the dedication and efforts of our employees, whose strong commitment is making the transformation process possible, and for their pride in being part of this important project. We are marking our carbon-reduced steel with the plus sign. To ensure that our customers around the world can immediately recognize the added value of our steel innovations, we are affixing it directly to our products.
to green steel
Hydrogen is used for the first time in Germany – not just in a test plant but on an industrial scale in steel production – in Dillingen, in the blast furnaces of ROGESA Roheisengesellschaft Saar mbH (a joint subsidiary of Saarstahl AG and AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke).
The Supervisory Boards of SHS – Stahl-Holding-Saar, Saarstahl AG and Aktien-Gesellschaft der Dillinger Hüttenwerke (Dillinger), the Board of Trustees of Montan-Stiftung-Saar and the Board of Management of SHS – Stahl-Holding-Saar decide to invest around EUR 3.5 billion for climate-neutral steel production by 2045 in the sites in Saarland – subject to public funding.
Planned start of construction of a direct reduced iron (DRI) plant and an electric arc furnace (EAF) in Dillingen as well as an EAF in Völklingen.
Planned startup of the DRI plant with a 2.5-million-ton capacity in Dillingen. Planned startup of two electric arc furnaces (EAFs) in Dillingen and Völklingen for approx. 3.5 million tons of crude steel per year.
Production of climate-friendly „green” steel from Dillingen and Völklingen is to begin, with 3.5 million tons of crude steel per year in the first phase.
We aim to achieve a 55 percent reduction of carbon emissions. That’s 4.9 million metric tons less carbon emitted annually. Dismantling of one blast furnace
Planned construction and commissioning of a third EAF.
Climate-neutral production of around 4.9 million tons of green steel.
We are drivers of the energy transition
The world’s largest offshore wind farm to date, „Hornsea 2” in the UK, Denmark’s largest offshore facility, „Kriegers Flak”, „Borssele III and IV” off the Dutch coast: Dillinger’s special plate is in demand for offshore wind energy projects worldwide.
We are building bridges to the future
Dillinger is a leading international manufacturer of heavy plate for the construction of offshore wind turbines, machinery and steel construction. Saarstahl is a world leader in the manufacture of wire rod and bar steel for the automotive industry, the construction industry and for general machine manufacturing.
We are drivers of the transport transition
The first low-carbon metro line 16 in Paris („bas carbone”) is being built with carbon-neutral steel from Saarstahl Rail. The high-speed railway lines in France and worldwide run on rails from Saarstahl Rail, as do the most important European railroad networks.
