Transformation of the steel industry

Transformation of the steel industry

In view of the climate crisis, the steel industry, as one of the biggest emitters, must strive for more sustainable production.

Innovations such as green hydrogen and electric arc furnaces are intended to reduce coal consumption in steel production and thus help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve climate targets.

3 ways of solution

Route 1 - Blast furnace

Around 70% of crude steel is still produced using coke. However, this form of extraction is increasingly viewed critically.

Route 2 - Arc furnace

The electric steel route describes production in the electric arc furnace. This route is often seen as a bridging technology for green steel.

New - Green steel

Fossil-free green steel is decarbonized steel. CO 2 is either completely avoided or captured and converted or stored.

Navigating the future

The Stahlo Stahlkompass

Environmental awareness is growing worldwide and increasingly demands that you also reduce your company's CO2-footprint. Purchasing energy-intensive products such as steel often offers the greatest optimization leverage.

Our Stahlkompass helps you to calculate your supply chain emissions for your flat steel portfolio and plan sustainable targets until 2030 to promote transparency and informed decisions.


Digital Materialpass (DMP)


Implementing transformation

PDF was yesterday. Paper was the day before yesterday!

Yesterday: We have been providing certificates in digital form as PDFs for years.

Today: With our DMP, we are going one step further and will also be offering our certificates in machine-readable form in future.

In the future: Customer plants can use the DMP to automate material data in real time.

Stahlo is revolutionizing the steel industry with the Digital Material Passport (DMP), which is much more than a PDF replacement for material test certificates. It provides machine-readable data and seamless integration with software solutions to ensure transparency throughout the supply chain.


Stahl DMP

Implementing transformation

Digital passport for steel coils

Blockchain authentication ensures the reliability of official documents and makes it possible to integrate specific emission data and payloads into the Stahlo digital material passport in addition to chemical and mechanical values.

The Stahlo DMP can become a critical foundation for digital product passports (DPP) designed to promote the circular economy. These passports enable the transfer of product data along value chains, such as in Catena-X, a leading ecosystem in the automotive industry. We provide compliant data transfer to such ecosystems to reliably exchange information such as payloads and CO2-emission values.

Profit for the supply chain

Stahlo Automatisierung

This means automation.

The DMP complies with current standards, contains all previous certificate data and offers even more: all data is stored as both PDF and machine-readable files for seamless transfer to recipient software and without media discontinuity.

Stahlo Compliance

That's how compliance works.

Notarization in the blockchain gives the data record full document properties. 
This means that the integrity of the data can be digitally verified at every stage of the downstream supply chain.

Stahlo Transparenz

This creates real transparency.

In addition to the classic material parameters from the chemical analysis and mechanical testing, the DMP can also contain the specific emission data - broken down into Scope 1, 2 and 3.

stahlo trusted excellence

This is Trusted Excellence!

The DMP is sent by e-mail. You can choose between PDF or machine-readable data records, your own integrations or preconfigured adapters from S1SEVEN, e.g. for SAP®. This allows you to achieve perfect industry-standard integration with authentication.

General framework

stahlo infopoint

Three requirements

Key elements of transformation

For industrial decarbonization to be successful, three elements must be successfully regulated by political decision-makers at national and European level:

  1. A reinforced carbon leakage protection,
  2. Faster access to alternative energies,
  3. Increased financial support!
