BENTELER Automotive and thyssenkrupp Steel Europe are joining forces on climate protection: The international automotive supplier has secured a long-term supply of climate-friendly bluemint® Steel from thyssenkrupp for the production of vehicle components. Both companies have signed a corresponding memorandum of understanding.
The CO2 intensity of bluemint Steel is already significantly reduced. In the production of the certified, climate-friendly steels, a proportion of the coking coal in the blast furnace process is replaced by pre-produced sponge iron or specially prepared scrap steel. Additionally, the cooperation between thyssenkrupp Steel and BENTELER will be intensified from 2026. The steel will then come from direct reduction plants in conjunction with meltdown units which, in future, will use green hydrogen and green electricity.
