CO2 Emissions

CO2 emissions from steel production are today 50% lower than 40 years ago0%
CO2 emissions from a standard steel can are today 30% lower than 15 years ago0%
Consumption of primary energy per tonne of crude steel is 60% lower than 50 years ago0%


European steel industry is committed to continually reducing energy use and emissions.
Moreover, Steel for packaging’s high recycling rate substantially reduces CO2 emissions.

In 2020, over 2.8 million tonnes of packaging steel was recycled in Europe, saving over 4 million tonnes of CO2

Energy and raw materials embedded in recycled cans are entirely reused

Using recycled steel saves 70% energy

Each item of recycled steel packaging saves over one and a half times its weight in CO2
