Metals are perfectly suited for a sustainable circular economy. They are extremely durable and can be infinitely recycled without degrading their quality or desired properties. Many of the new technologies in the fields of renewable energy, mobility or communication we see around us are built on metals.
Today, the production and processing of steel, aluminum, copper and other non-ferrous metals contributes to about 8 % of global greenhouse gas emissions. However, by applying new technologies in metals production and recycling, it will be possible to reduce these emissions to net-zero and achieve the reductions needed to limit climate change.
At SMS group, we have made it our mission to create a carbon-neutral and sustainable metals industry. We supply the technology to produce and recycle all major metals. This gives us a key role in the transformation towards a green metals industry.
Our metallurgical know-how and our engineering skills combined with our digital expertise and plant technology consultancy enable us and our partners to forge a greener metals industry. It also allows us to make a fully circular use of metals. We are now fully focused on this vision, and together with our partners, we are on our way to turning metals green.
