Steel Europe

Electrical steel

thyssenkrupp is a global market leader in high-tech electrical steel, a product used throughout the electricity value chain from generation to transmission, distribution and consumption. Our product range includes both semi-finished and fully finished grades. Innovative PowerCore® electrical steels offer extremely high efficiency. The grain-oriented version, produced by a sophisticated process to create its special grain structure, is used in transformers, while non-oriented electrical steel is employed in electric motors, appliances and generators.

Hot strip

thyssenkrupp's hot-rolled portfolio extends from mild and structural steels to thermomechanically rolled high-strength PERFORM® grades for cold forming. Hot-rolled steel is available pickled and unpickled in a variety of dimensions. The wide range includes our premium product SCALUR®, pickled hot-rolled steel with very close thickness tolerances, sour gas-resistant pipeline steel, manganese-boron steels for hot forming, and dual phase steels for the manufacture of complex high-strength structural elements.

Packaging steel

As a world leading manufacturer of packaging steel, thyssenkrupp produces tin-coated, chromium-coated and uncoated blackplate in thicknesses of 0.100 to 0.499 mm in its Rasselstein product range. Depending on customer requirements, the product Thinplate®, an even thinner high-end material but with the same properties, can additionally be painted or film-laminated. Our premium tinplate is used for example for the packaging of food, beverages, and chemical/technical products. Increasingly the material is also being employed in the construction, automobile and electronics sectors.

Whether horizontal chamber kilns, heat recovery or byproduct systems – thanks to our know-how and innovative processes our coke plants meet the latest environmental standards and reliably produce high-quality coke for internal use or for sale.

Green Ammonia

Ammonia is one of the most widely produced chemicals in the world. The demand for green ammonia as a basic chemical will even double by the year 2050. This is because green ammonia is an ideal transport medium for hydrogen and is therefore central to the green transformation of industry and the success of the energy transition.
Ammonia can also be used in fuel cells to generate electricity. And since the only emissions are air and water, ammonia is an excellent storage medium for electrical energy.
As the world's population grows, so does the demand for food and thus for fertilizers and ammonia. Green ammonia is indispensable when it comes to producing enough food for a growing world population.

With its proven uhde® ammonia process, thyssenkrupp Uhde is one of the leading technology suppliers in the field of ammonia. We are a reliable and competent partner for EPC projects and world market leader for ammonia plants with more than 2,500 chemical plants built worldwide and over 100 years of experience.

Green Methanol

Green methanol serves primarily the chemical industry as a base material for a wide range of chemical products such as polymer fibers for the textile industry, plastics for packaging, adhesives, diapers, paints, solvents and much more. Methanol also serves as a fuel or fuel additive.

Thanks to the growth of affordable renewable energy, methanol can be produced based on wind or solar power, geothermal energy or hydropower - significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This "green methanol" is environmentally friendly and can be used as an energy carrier to store renewably generated electricity or as a transportation fuel. In addition to LNG and ammonia, green methanol can also be considered as a substitute fuel for maritime applications. In addition, it can be blended with conventional liquid fuels or used as a fuel for 100% methanol-based propulsion systems.

thyssenkrupp uses its own Uhde methanol technology for production. The hydrogen is produced using highly efficient alkaline water electrolysis (AWE), based on thyssenkrupp's proven chlor-alkali electrolysis technology. The carbon dioxide is recovered from biogas or other fermentation plants as well as from a wide variety of applications such as flue and exhaust gases from chemical and petrochemical complexes, cement plants or steel mills. By removing this greenhouse gas from the atmosphere and "recycling" it, the production process can make a further positive contribution to climate protection.

High-pressure processing (HPP)

Food preservation at 6,000 bar for natural, fresh products – no heat, additives, no loss of nutrients. Products are processed directly in their packaging, so later contamination is not possible. It works e.g. for vacuum packs, modified atmosphere packs (MAP), or for plastic bottles. The result: up to 10 times longer shelf life and extremely high product safety. Look, texture and taste of your products remain unaltered.

Refinery services

thyssenkrupp offers premium-quality spare parts and a full range of aftersales services for refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants. With our global network we are present throughout the world. We support customers quickly and reliably in the operation and maintenance of their facilities, and also with revamps, upgrades, and spare parts management.
