When Swedish bucket manufacturer Lennéers started collaborating with SSAB and implementing Hardox® wear plate in its products, sales increased with more than 200 percent. According to founder and managing director Dennis Lennéer, this is because the market wants top-quality products that are strong, light, and long lasting.
The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has awarded HYBRIT its Environmental Goals Prize for "Boldness and momentum". This initiative, conceived by SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall, plans to produce fossil free steel by replacing coal with fossil-free electricity and hydrogen. The by-product from steelmaking will then be water rather than carbon dioxide.
