Ruukki Construction Ready To Deliver World’s First Fossil-Free Steel Building Products
Ruukki Construction, part of SSAB Group, has produced the world’s first building products made of SSAB fossil-free steel. The pilot products were manufactured at Ruukki’s Alajärvi plant in Finland.
Ruukki will deliver sandwich panels, façade claddings and roofing products made of fossil-free steel to carefully selected customers who have a strong sustainability agenda.
Emissions originating in the manufacturing phase will be minimized where possible by using green energy and by choosing material and logistics options with minimum environmental impact.
“We are proud to contribute to our industry’s green transition. Building products made of SSAB’s fossil-free steel are important drivers of sustainable construction and help our customers significantly reduce the lifecycle impacts of their buildings. However, the greatest emission impact occurs during the use of buildings. That is why we have for decades invested in developing and producing long-lasting and energy-efficient building products,” said Sami Eronen, president, Ruukki Construction.
Products made of fossil-free steel are part of Ruukki’s efforts to take the construction industry towards carbon-neutral buildings. In addition, this year Ruukki will also pilot SSAB Zero™ steel made from recycled steel in building products in order to be the first to launch state-of-the-art recycled steel-based product families in 2024. Products made of fossil-free steel will be offered at a commercial scale from 2026.
