Sustainability and climate protection | Worth knowing | The sustainable design of packaging is a major challenge – and the unpackaged movement is gaining ground, and rightly so. But it doesn’t always have to be like this: with environmentally friendly packaging materials, we can do a lot for our planet. As part of “Recycle Week,” we present tinplate, one of the most sustainable packaging materials in the world.

energy concepts | future of production | Sustainability and climate protection | To make steel production more sustainable, thyssenkrupp is already working on promising hydrogen-based technologies. Because the production of hydrogen requires a lot of electricity, the expansion of renewable energies is a decisive factor for large-scale industrial implementation. During her visit to our Duisburg steel site, Germany’s Federal Research Minister Anja Karliczek pointed out that this challenge could only be met by working together. She was impressed by thyssenkrupp’s two-pillar strategy for green steel.

innovation | Smart energy | Sustainability and climate protection | Urbanization | Year after year, rice and wheat fields burn in many regions of northern India – and dark smoke clouds pollute the already smog-polluted air of Delhi even more. Now, a new technology from thyssenkrupp could put an end to the so-called “stubble burning” that was born out of the plight of local farmers. And it could also supply the Indian power grid with green energy.

innovation | Sustainability and climate protection | When it comes to climate protection, we have set ourselves a very clear goal: we want to become climate-neutral by 2050 – and reduce our emissions by 30 percent by 2030. We also want to support our customers in becoming greener. This also applies to agriculture. During the production of fertilizers, nitrous oxide – often called laughing gas – is emitted in large quantities. The greenhouse gas is actually about 300 times more climate-damaging than carbon dioxide. The EnviNOx® process dissolves the climate killer into air.
