The SSAB EcoUpgraded concept saves CO2 both in steel production and during the full lifetime of the end product. With the SSAB EcoUpgraded app, you can calculate how much the upgrading to high-strength steels reduces the weight of equipment, improves fuel economy and increases product lifetime – all of which reduce the carbon footprint.
When upgrading from standard steel to high-strength steel, you can cut the weight of the end product while maintaining the same strength and increasing durability and productivity. From a lifecycle perspective, this is beneficial as most of the environmental impact comes from the end product’s use phase.
By upgrading with steel from SSAB, manufacturers will quickly be able to compensate for the CO2 emissions from steel production during the use phase of the product. And once the break-even point has been reached, the application will continue to deliver CO2 savings amounting to many times the original CO2 debt.
With the SSAB EcoUpgraded app, you can calculate
• Fuel savings over the lifetime of the equipment
• CO2 savings over the lifetime of the equipment
• CO2 payback time
You can also save the results and generate a PDF report that can be shared through e-mail.
