LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT

At Sandvik, we continuously strive at reducing our environmental impact. Many of our customers do to, and together we can make a difference. 

With the Life Cycle Assessment services, we can provide you with a Cradle-to-Gate assessment for your Sandvik steel. This includes the global warming potential for everything from recycled materials and additional alloys, steelworks, melting, hot and cold working, transports, electricity and water use up until the product leaves the Sandvik factory gate. 

Steel production at Sandvik in Sweden has a comparably low environmental footprint for several reasons:

  • Production is based on recycled materials
  • Electricity mix of hydropower and nuclear
  • Rigid environmental legislation for pollution to air and water
  • Numerous projects ongoing to reduce emissions every year

  • It also contains information about level of recycling (steel grade annual average)
