Pipes made of CO2 reduced steel

An essential next step in the development of our family-owned business and our sector

As a family-owned company, Van Leeuwen takes responsibility for the environment and society to ensure a sustainable future of our company and the world. This is integrated in our strategy.

The steel industry accounts for 7-9% of the global CO2 emissions. Therefore, small improvements already have a huge impact for our environment. As market leader, we take the lead in setting the standard for more sustainable steel products to help our customers reduce their CO2 footprint.

To achieve this, we work together with innovative steel mills who have the same mission, in order to keep innovating production methods. Please find information in our press release about the first delivery of tubes made of low carbon emissions steel: XCarb® from Arcelor Mittal.

How is CO2 reduction achieved?

The following CO2 reducing measures are taken during the production process:

  • A minimum of 75% of scrap is used to produce the steel
  • The scrap is melted in electric arc furnaces 100% fed by renewable energy like wind and solar.
  • For the transport of the steel products, mills use as much sea transport as possible, replacing transport by road.

Because of these measures, tubes made of CO2 reduced steel can help saving up to 75% emissions.

How are the emission reductions documented?

The steel mills offer so called EPD's: Environmental Product Declarations. These certificates are verified by independent bodied. You receive the EPD with your order, as guarantee of the lower environmental impact of the product during its whole life cycle.

Which assortment can be delivered from stock?
