SSAB launches Docol™ (hot-rolled) steel tailor made for chassis applications
During the next few months SSAB releases two new hot rolled advanced high strength steel products that are more or less tailor-made for chassis applications. “The advanced high strength steels exceed 800 and 1000 MPa in tensile strength which offers a unique combination of properties for maximized hole expansion and edge ductility” says Daniel Sund, Product Manager for hot-rolled automotive products at SSAB Europe. The Docol HR800HE and Docol HR1000HE steel grades fulfil the toughest OEM requirements for hole expansion ratio, for example for a lower control arm.

Paper industry sludge could reduce steel industry carbon footprint
Despite our blast furnaces being among the world’s most carbon efficient, we are continuously working to further reduce the carbon footprint in our steel production. Small changes in blast furnace raw material charges, such as briquette composition, can contribute to this effort. This is where our subsidiary Merox comes in.

SSAB ranked second best in the CDP steel industry report
CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) recently published steel report concludes that steel companies need technological transformation in order to meet Paris Agreement objectives on emission reductions. CDP ranked SSAB as second best in the report. SSAB’s emissions intensity is low, driven by significant electric arc furnace operations in the US, and some of the world’s most carbon-efficient blast furnaces in Europe. SSAB’s emissions reduction target is one of the most ambitious of the companies assessed. In addition, earlier this year, SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall jointly announced a long-term breakthrough emissions reduction project (HYBRIT), which is working toward a hydrogen-based steelmaking process.
