Sustainability is part of Aperam's DNA. We are the only steel mill in the world that produces steel using 100% charcoal as raw material. Because it is produced with a clean and renewable energy source, we classify our product as Green Steel. Everything starts in the 100% renewable forests of Aperam BioEnergia in Vale do Jequitinhonha, where the charcoal that supplies our kilns is produced. The entire process of charcoal production is done in an ecologically correct, socially just and economically viable way. Thus, we maintain a relationship of respect with the environment.
