Acting sustainably: CO2-reduced steel for Green Teuto Systemtechnik

14 May 2024
  • New: 1400 tonnes of low-emission steel beams for the construction of a new production hall in Ibbenbüren
  • Sustainable: Steel made from 100% recycled scrap, produced with renewable energy
  • Together: cooperation between Green Teuto Systemtechnik, ArcelorMittal and WURST Stahlbau

The new production hall in Ibbenbüren

As part of its commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness, Green Teuto Systemtechnik (GTS) - a Krone Group company and manufacturer of agricultural machinery and commercial vehicles - has made a landmark decision. GTS planned the construction of its first production site in Ibbenbüren with a strong focus on sustainable construction methods. The company is using the CO2-reduced steel ‘XCarb® Recycled and Renewably Produced’ from ArcelorMittal, which has around 70% lower CO2 emissions than conventionally produced steel. The approx. 1,400 tonnes of steel will be installed by the Bersenbrück-based company WURST Stahlbau.

Jochen Roling, Managing Director of GTS, emphasises the signal effect of the construction project. ‘From structural steel to photovoltaics and heat pump technology - we have ensured the best possible energy supply for this new construction project in accordance with the KfW 40EE standard - renewable energies. As part of the Krone Group, we were able to prove here that we consistently implement sustainability and environmental awareness. We are part of a family business that has been acting responsibly for four generations. We set standards in terms of sustainable industry - starting with the construction steel.’

Oliver Menrath, Managing Director of ArcelorMittal Steel Trading Germany, is also positive about the collaboration: ‘We are delighted to be part of this forward-looking project. We can already supply CO2-reduced steel today. This cooperation shows that environmentally friendly steel is increasingly in demand and will continue to play a key role in achieving climate targets.’

Christian Wurst, Managing Director of WURST Stahlbau and President of the German Steel Construction Association (DSTV), also welcomes the GTS approach of implementing the greatest possible sustainability throughout the entire construction project: ‘At a time when we are always focussing on compliance with the Paris Climate Agreement in everything we do, the use of low-emission steel is a clear commitment to reducing the industrial CO2 footprint.’

The beams used are supplied by ArcelorMittal Stahlhandel in Germany. ‘XCarb® Recycled and Renewably Produced’ is steel made from 100% recycled scrap in an electric arc furnace powered exclusively by electricity from renewable energy sources.
