XCarb® is a trademark registered by ArcelorMittal that represents the clear path taken by the company towards the decarbonisation of the steel production process and the ambitious goal of zero emissions by 2050.

XCarb® will ultimately bring together all of ArcelorMittal’s reduced, low and zero-carbon products and steelmaking activities, as well as wider initiatives and green innovation projects, into a single effort focused on achieving demonstrable progress towards carbon neutral steel.

ArcelorMittal has developed two decarbonised production routes (Smart Carbon route and innovative DRI route), and is deploying these low-emission technologies across Europe. Find out more here.

  • XCarb® green steel certificates: Allowing customers to reduce their or their customers' scope 3 emissions. Can be purchased directly from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products in conjunction with a corresponding steel order.
  • XCarb® recycled and renewably produced: Applied to steels produced in an electric arc furnace (EAF) using scrap and 100-percent renewable electricity.
  • XCarbTM innovation fund: We also continue to invest in companies developing breakthrough technologies that will accelerate the steel industry’s transition to carbon neutral steelmaking.
