ArcelorMittal is a giant in the steel world, and when you see images of those gigantic furnaces, you do not immediately think of ecology. And yet, ArcelorMittal strives for a more sustainable process and therefore joins the URBCON project. A solid partner since they supply source materials for the clean concrete of our project. This way, we strive together for fewer emissions and better reuse of raw materials. We went to hear from Eric, LIS Project Manager at ArcelorMittal.
Eric: "I am LIS Project Manager, LIS stands for Low Impact Steel. We produce steel with a low impact on the environment. We aim to give carbon a second life, preferably an eternal one, in order to create a circular economy. A big challenge, we know. ArcelorMittal Europe has committed to reducing CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030, with a further ambition to be carbon neutral by 2050, in line with the EU Green Deal and the Paris Agreement. As Europe's largest steel producer, with operations in blast furnaces, electric arc furnaces, and direct reduced iron in as many as seven different countries, we have an important role to play in contributing to the EU's green ambitions. With the right support, reducing carbon emissions is certainly achievable. And at URBCON we have found that support."
