Environment : A commitment

In a world in which pollution reduction has become a primary goal Ascometal® has been for many years deeply engaged in an environmental policy.
Ascometal® implements a certified ISO 14001 environmental management system. All plants are certified. This environmental protection approach materializes as follows:
  • Constant compliance with laws and regulations
  • A plan for reduction and treatment of our emissions
  • An industrial waste recovery plan for the valorization of our industrial wastes, e.g. our slags in the off high way sector
  • A limitation to our natural resources, energy and fluids consumption, including production steps lowering the use of fossil fuel
  • An innovative steel offer which contributes to our customers’ targets aiming at lowering polluting gaz emmissions or fuel consumption of vehicles: making vehicles lighter weight in order to limit the greenhouse gas emissions
Ascometal® special steels, which can be recycled virtually indefinitely, also contribute to our customers’ environmental efficiency. In the automotive industry , for example, our steel grades contribute to design lighter weight vehicles, hence lowering their fuel consumption, and as a consequence, lower their contribution to green house effect.
"Green" by nature!
Entirely based on the use of recycled scrap metal and on Electric Arc Furnace process naturally based on a low CO2 emitting mix, the carbon balance of Ascometal steels is particularly favourable. Our performance in carbon low emission and  the geographical proximity of the majority of our customers contribute to the virtuous nature of their own environmental footprint.
