We are committed to sustainable development
With recycled steel from Gerlafingen to be used in the concrete reinforcement and steel construction sector, you can build in a sustainable, flexible and compressed manner height-wise as well as depth-wise.
Urban Steel Mining. In Switzerland, 8 tons of steel per capita are used as the «main supporting element» in buildings and goods. Every year, 340 kg of new steel per capita can be added to that, of which approx. 150 kg consist of reinforcement and steel sections and 190 kg consist of steel that goes «out of service», becoming steel scrap. The utilization of this steel scrap makes the iron contained therein usable again for new applications. This raw material extraction from buildings and goods is also called Urban Mining. This concept works very well for the sectors of reinforcement steel and steel sections. Read more (PDF)
