Stainless Steel CO2 Emissions Report
Like any other major industry, the stainless steels industry consistently endeavours to reduce its operational CO2 emissions year-on-year. Industry direct emissions and indirect emissions have, due to solid industry improvement efforts, progressively reduced over the last decade. The released report outlines the differences between the scrap-based and Nickel Pig Iron (NPI) production system and the emissions associated with them. Although 95% of stainless steel scrap is collected for recycling at the end-of-life, there is not enough stainless steel scrap available globally, therefore these production routes will co-exist for several decades to come.
