XCarb® tubes with low CO2 emissions available

Van Leeuwen Pipe and Tube Group and ArcelorMittal Europe - Tubular Products have announced a new partnership to offer low carbon-emissions steel tubes, enabling companies in construction and engineering industries to reduce the carbon footprint embedded in the products they purchase, as part of their scope 3 emissions. 

XCarb® recycled and renewably produced steel tubes, produced by ArcelorMittal and distributed by Van Leeuwen Pipe and Tube Group, can help companies realize CO2 emissions savings of up to 75 percent compared with conventionally produced steel tubes. 

Full data transparency with EPD certificate

The tubes are manufactured with "XCarb® recycled and renewably produced", a label applied to ArcelorMittal’s steel produced in an electric arc furnace (EAF) using high levels of scrap and 100% renewable electricity for the EAF. The electricity used comes from renewable sources such as wind and solar and is supplied via a recognized Guarantee of Origin (GoO) scheme. These steel tubes are the first on the market that enable such a significant reduction in CO2 emissions, and which come with an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) to give full data transparency to customers. 

The tubes are delivered by our main transport partner LV Logistics, with trucks powered by HVO100 biodiesel. This reduces the CO2 emissions of our transport by more than 90%. This is another very important factor in reducing carbon emissions in our supply chain.

Working with strong partners

The partnership is part of our strategic targets relating to climate action. We constantly work to identify and reduce our carbon footprint throughout the entire value chain, cooperating with suppliers to produce and distribute pipes and tubes with a reduced carbon footprint.

To mark the occasion, we celebrated the first delivery of XCarb hollow sections to the warehouse of Van Leeuwen in Zwijndrecht together on July 12, 2023.
