XCarb® recycled and renewably produced applies to products made via the Electric Arc Furnace route using scrap steel and 100% renewable energy.

By using only scrap steel and renewable energy, XCarb® recycled and renewably produced products have an extremely low CO, footprint that can be as low as approximately 300kg of CO2 per tonne of finished steel when the metallics are 100% scrap. 

The electricity used in the steelmaking process is independently verified, with a ‘Guarantee of Origin’ given that it is from renewable sources. This is ensured by our purchasing of ‘Renewable Energy Certificates’ (RECs), a market-based offering that certifies the bearer owns a specific amount (in megawatt-hours) of electricity generated from a renewable energy resource. 

With the launch of XCarbTM, ArcelorMittal Dofasco has published following EPDs to highlight the benefits of recycled and renewably produced steel:

XCarb EPD for Cold Formed Sections

XCarb EPD for Corrugated Steel Pipe

XCarb EPD for Hollow Structural Sections
