Renewal of that approval was achieved in 2001 according to ISO
ISO approval is a guarantee that our quality

to invest in the advancement of flue-gas cleaning and energy
On a course of constant improvement to both the
outdoor and inplant environment we have committed substantial
Since the early 70s we have conducted a
long-term programme for flue-gas cleaning which has resulted in
emissions far below today´s official limits. Efficient use of
energy is one key factor of our environmental improvement work.
The reduction of energy consumption is also a must for
economic reasons. Our production is focused on ferrochrome and
ferrosilicon alloys which are important ingredients in special
steels including stainless steel. Life cycle analyses have shown
that these grades of steel have environmental advantages
superior to those of alternative materials.

environmental improvement work which is an important contributor
to our competetive advantage.
