April 12, 2021

Sweden’s Höganäs AB has released its sustainability report for the full-year 2020. The annual Höganäs Sustainability Report highlights the actions the company taking toward sustainability, the progress it is making towards its ambitious goals, and helps to identify improvements that the group can make in the future.

Höganäs explains that 2020 was a challenging year, with the coronavirus (COVID-19) impacting the world on unprecedented levels. Despite this, Höganäs was still able to make significant progress towards a number of sustainability targets. Key figures highlighted in the report show that:

  • 51% of energy used came from renewable or part-renewable resources
  • An 8.1% reduction in energy use per produced tonne was seen between 2010–2020
  • 49% of the group’s total raw material base now consists of secondary or recycled materials
  • 80% of all process residuals are now diverted from disposal

Höganäs states that it is determined to lead the profound change to industry that is needed to achieve sustainable steelmaking. Its intention to be a sustainability leader is demonstrated in its commitment to developing more sustainable products that create value for its customers, and society as a whole, and its work to make operations more sustainable.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
