In order to be the first external distributor to supply fossil-free steel on the Norwegian market, commencing in 2026, SSAB has entered into an agreement with the Norwegian steel distributor Norsk Stal AS.
SSAB intends to completely transform the steelmaking process. By 2026, we want to commercially introduce steel free of fossil fuels, and by 2030, we want to have almost no carbon dioxide emissions coming from our own activities. As part of the HYBRIT initiative, SSAB collaborates with the iron ore producer LKAB and the energy provider Vattenfall to create a value chain for fossil-free iron- and steelmaking that substitutes fossil-free electricity and hydrogen for the coking coal that is typically used for iron ore-based steelmaking. With this method, carbon dioxide emissions from the manufacture of steel are all but eliminated.
Norsk Stal AS is a privately held, independent Norwegian distributor of steel and metal with 12 facilities around the country.
