ArcelorMittal, General Motors partner for supply agreement for North American-sourced XCarb Steel

ArcelorMittal North America will supply General Motors with XCarb recycled and renewably produced (RRP) steel, offering significantly reduced CO2 emissions compared to much of the carbon steel available in North America.

The material will be supplied from ArcelorMittal Dofasco in Hamilton, Ont. and shipments are expected to begin during 2Q 2023.

XCarb RRP steel is made via the Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) route and contains a stated minimum of 70 percent scrap, with up to 90 percent scrap, and does not use carbon offsets to achieve the reduced carbon intensity. It is a physical steel product. Its lower CO2 intensity has been independently verified with an accompanying Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) that includes Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.
