Stainless steel is 100% recyclable, corrosion-resistant, durable and hygienic and the environmental impacts resulting from its use are almost non-existent. As the world’s most recycled material, stainless steel fits perfectly into the circular economy – and our recycled content is the highest on the market at 87%.
Outokumpu strongly believes that stainless steel is the key building block for a sustainable development of global infrastructure. It is in many ways the perfect answer to such global megatrends as urbanization and mobility and global challenges like limited resources and growing demand for clean energy and pure water. Renewable energy solutions such as solar power, biofuels and wind energy require components and materials that can be sustainably sourced and yield low life-cycle costs. Stainless steel is an optimal choice in such areas. Read more about its product properties.
