Outokumpu finds rail market for recycled-content stainless steel


Finland based stainless steel producer Outokumpu Oyj has agreed to supply its 98 percent recycled-content Circle Green-branded stainless to Germany-based multinational Siemens AG for use in making medium-voltage switchgear for the railroad sector.

“The rising energy demand and future of green solutions are dependent on sustainable stainless steel,” says Niklas Wass, president of the Stainless Europe business line for Outokumpu. “Our spearhead climate solution, Circle Green, enables green energy transition and brings a true opportunity to transform various industries. We are proud to join forces with Siemens, who shows the way toward a low-emission future.”

Outokumpu says Circle Green production is the first of its kind globally, adding, “No other stainless steel manufacturer has been able to produce stainless steel with such low emission levels when taking into account all the climate emissions from raw material extraction throughout the whole production chain.”
