Swiss Steel with scrap dealers to produce ‘green steel’

Scrap is the primary raw material for Swiss Steel Group. Producing steel from pre-sorted scrap requires less energy and generates less CO2 than producing steel from iron ore and alloy metals.

Swiss Steel Group processes more than 2.2 million tons of scrap annually in its plants, making it one of the largest recycling companies in Europe. To produce high-quality steel, it is necessary to use new scrap material from metal processing with precisely known alloying additions.

This enables precise control of the composition of the new steel, resulting in the production of high-grade steel for new quality products. Swiss Steel Group plant in Switzerland is collaborating with scrap suppliers and multiple universities on a project to create a digital twin of incoming scrap. This project utilizes big data to enable steelworks to predict the type of scrap that will be delivered, resulting in more efficient and effective delivery, production, and steel quality.
