Innovative solutions for the future

Whatever our customers require, our priority is always to come up with a solution that is sustainable and innovative and will give our customers an edge going forward.

Various projects have confirmed that this is the right approach. One of them is the StreetScooter, the first all-electric delivery van used by the parcel service Deutsche Post DHL Group. Or take the MINI from BMW. Our ZM Ecoprotect zinc-magnesium coating for steel sets new standards for corrosion protection and processing.

These projects show that steel is a material that still has a great deal to offer in terms of development and innovation

We are a strong team

The innovative ideas and energy of our employees are key to developing and positioning steel as the material of the future and maintaining our leading position on the European market.

This pioneering role is made possible for example by 19 patents, courtesy of Dr. Brigitte Hammer and safe passenger cells, courtesy of Dr. Ekaterina Bocharova. And of course by engineers who ensure that new products are also practical to use and produce.

Steel, the material of the future

We are fully convinced of steel’s potential. It is versatile and sustainable. And thanks to steel, tomorrow starts today.

Our powercore®® electrical steels are a good example of this. In various applications they are driving the transition to renewables – as core materials for generators, transformers and motors. On the other hand MBW® is already offering car manufacturers new ways of saving weight while at the same time enhancing occupant safety.

Environmental and social responsiblity

As a major industrial enterprise, thyssenkrupp’s Steel business is aware of its environmental and social responsibility. We therefore work constantly to develop technologies that help keep the footprint of a major organization as small as possible.

Reducing our CO2 emissions plays a key role in this. To this end, we have developed a clear strategy that focuses on avoiding emissions through the use of hydrogen on the one hand, and on the use of emissions through our Carbon2Chem technology on the other.

With the world's largest fabric filter in Duisburg, Germany, we also manage to filter almost 100 percent of the dust produced in the production of sinter, thus ensuring clean air.

We are particularly pleased that our efforts are being noticed and recognized. For example, thyssenkrupp's award as a leader in climate protection by the non-profit organization CDP was a special honor for us.
