Steel production in an electric arc furnace
The main thing that comes out of our chimney is water vapor. Why? Because we produce our steel using an electric arc furnace. This type of production emits 90% less CO2 than steel production in a conventional blast furnace. How this works exactly is best explained by our steelworkers themselves. Take a look at the video.

Video portrait: Our steel workers
As a family business, BENTELER has been thinking sustainably for generations. Want proof? Take our steel mill in Lingen. There, we’ve been producing steel in an environmentally friendly way using an electric arc furnace for almost 50 years. From 100% scrap. This type of production emits 90% less CO2 than steel production in a conventional blast furnace.
Plant manager Andreas Stadtherr shows us what he finds so exciting about his plant, his team and steel as a material – take a look at the video.
Green Tubes: Behind the scenes
How is a sustainability strategy developed? What hurdles have to be overcome? And what can one learn from it? This is what Green Tubes program manager Thomas Begemann explains in a look behind the scenes.
He also talked to the trade magazine STAHLMARKT. Over three pages, he explains why the Steel/Tube Division is already at a point where the steel industry is only just planning to go. And where we will be by 2045.
Both interviews and even more about the sustainability strategy of BENTELER Steel/Tube can be found here.
