Industeel’s wear-resistant steel Relia®400 is now available as XCarb® recycled and renewably produced plates at Universal Eisen und Stahl GmbH.
The decarbonisation of industry does not stop at using renewable energies in the manufacturing phase; resource-saving processes and the use of low carbon-emissions materials also support the transformation of the economy. Moving in this direction, Industeel, business division of ArcelorMittal Downstream Solutions, is now supplying XCarb® recycled and renewably produced Relia® plates to customer Universal Eisen und Stahl.

Relia® 400 is made from recycled steel scrap in an electric arc furnace powered by wind energy, resulting in a carbon footprint reduction of around 60% compared with traditional steelmaking. The plates are available in thicknesses of up to 100 mm and are third-party certified with a Product Carbon Footprint of 1.1 tonne of CO2eq per ton of plate.
Universal Eisen und Stahl GmbH, founded in 1958, is one of the highest performing providers in the market today. At their warehouses in Neuss and Hanover, they stock about 60,000 tonnes of steel in 40 grades, and will now stock our quality plates made of CO2-reduced steel for their customers.
