About Celsa Nordic
Celsa Armeringsstål AS is the leading producer of reinforced steel products in the Nordic countries. The plant consist of a steel plant and a rolling mill, and is situated in Mo Industrial Park in Mo i Rana, Norway.
The raw material used in the production mainly consists of scrap metal. The melting of the scrap is done in an electric arc furnace and casted into long billets as a first step in the process. Then the rolling mill rolls the billets to straight and coiled reinforcing bars and wire rod. The bulk of the production is used for concrete reinforcement for the Nordic market. Thanks to the furnace in Mo i Rana, each year we recycle about 700 000 tons of steel scrap. This is equivalent to melting two Eiffel Towers per week. Celsa Armeringsstål AS and Celsa Steelservice is part of the Celsa Nordic Group. Celsa Nordic Group also includes CSS companies located in Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. CSS sites are responsible for final processing and selling of reinforcement products in their respective countries.
All the CSS sites operating in the Nordic countries are aware of their responsibility towards the surroundings in which they operate. As major recyclers, we are also particularly committed to taking care of the environment closest to us and we are aware of the impact it has on the wellbeing of our employees and their families.
Commitment towards sustainability
At Celsa Nordic, we recycle about 700 000 tons of scrap steel each year. This has made us one of the largest recycling companies in Norway.
We take this responsibility very seriously. The technology we – our mill– is based on, is an electric oven. This is the most environmentally friendly mill in the global steel industry, since it emits only half of the CO2 into the atmosphere, compared to other comprehencive steel mills intended for similar production.
Sustainability development is based on our commitment to improve the quality of life in today´s society without compromising the ability to meet the needs of future generations. Therefore, Celsa Nordic have developed a sustainability roadmap to integrate sustainability polices into the decisions-making process to reduce our overall environmental impact. We have defined four sustainability pillars, each of which has their own set of sustainability targets.
We believe in our mission to help define steel as an environmentally sound building material, and to help companies improve the environmental credentials of their projects. This means that we provide value throughout our entire product and service value chain in an environmentally efficient way all over the Nordic countries.
We firmly believe that innovation will enable us to serve our customers in the best possible way, with a top class product that is higly efficient and suited to their needs. If we want to remain leaders, we must trust in innovation as we have done so far. Celsa Nordic has been a pioneer in terms of environmental commitment in the Steel industry in Europe, and are devoted to retain that position in the future.
Already in 1996, Celsa Nordic was the first steel mill to obtain the ISO:14001. Furthermore in 2012, Celsa Nordic developed the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for the reinforcing steel produced in Mo i Rana. All Celsa Steel Service (CSS) companies have their own EPD and can demonstrate the impact we have on the environment.
We are aware of our impact, and therefore, we take our responsibility seriously
