Sustainable production saves you money

Spiraling energy costs, government restrictions on emissions, and limited resources - going green makes business sense more than ever before. That's why SMS group focuses on the vast scope available for integrating energy saving and eco solutions in metallurgical processes. 

Crucial for resource-efficient technologies is streamlining production and boosting yields. There is even more potential for savings when you take a broader perspective. This means looking not just at individual parts of the plant, but also at the whole process. You can recycle recovered energy or residues in your entire plant to substitute expensive input materials. However, all methods that protect resources must be transparent and easy to grasp.

The SMS group response is our "ecoplants" label. It indicates especially eco-friendly solutions. That shows we take sustainability seriously as a key growth factor for both economic and ecological reasons.

Here is how we combine sustainability and business success:

Much lower raw materials input

Much lower energy and operating media consumption

Much lower emissions

Much higher recycling rate
