Our steel is made of scrap and is 100 % recyclable

Urbanisation challenging technology and innovative ability

Only a few industries can achieve this with their products. 100% environmental responsibility through industrial production with durable recyclable steel: energy-efficient and sustainable.

Our production has grown, as has our efficiency in the use of resources and energy. In contrast, our emissions have fallen sustainably. In this way, we make a continuous and successful contribution to protecting the environment and the climate.

Enormous amounts of expensive energy and scarce resources are needed worldwide. The production of steel also requires a great deal of energy and material. Reason enough to produce more resource-efficiently and offer lower-consumption products. Increasing quality requirements and cost pressure regularly lead to technological advances in energy and material efficiency. This results in innovations in process and plant engineering and further developments in energy technology for processes. This efficiency can be measured at SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH: Energy consumption and CO2 emissions have been continuously reduced at our plants for several years now.

New processes reduce ecological footprint

For us, environmentally conscious industrial production not only affects our products but also leads to appropriate intelligent production methods and processes. Through ongoing innovation and the use of high-quality technologies, we are constantly improving our ecological footprint.


SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH is increasing its resource efficiency with new and improved materials. Our innovative steel solutions make the production process more efficient and our intelligent, complete solutions achieve an enviable recycling rate: steel is a material with one of the longest life spans, and it is also recyclable.


Our products are sustainable because steel scrap is used as the basic resource in production. This is real resource efficiency.


Lower energy and material consumption and fewer emissions for the long term: these are our corporate objectives. For us, this is a matter of mindset: we bear 100 % responsibility for our environment. Therefore we act sustainably and retain a longterm outlook – for the success of our customers as well. We are proud of this.
