Sustainability is about much more than just the environment.

The stainless steel industry also aims to operate in an economically sustainable way that respects the well-being of its employees and the people and communities associated with its businesses.

The stainless industry is constantly looking for ways to improve its environmental performance.

More information about stainless steel and sustainability can be found on this website.

Stainless Steel in Biogas Production

A Sustainable Solution for Green Energy.

Energy from biomass is among the cheapest forms of renewable energy. The equipment to produce biogas comes into contact with corrosive elements. Properly specified stainless steels can withstand the corrosive materials in a biogas plant. This brochure explains why stainless steel is typically utilised in digesters, pumps and valves, agitators, pipes and fittings and purification applications.

Desalination in stainless steel

Successful desalination requires a material that can resist the aggressive corrosion caused by seawater and brine. Utilising stainless steel to create fresh water further increases the sustainability profile of the desalination industry. The durability and minimal maintenance requirements of stainless make it a good choice economically. The high-level of recycled content and 100% recyclability at the end of its life are the cornerstones of stainless steel’s environmental profile. High performance stainless steels, including duplex grades, are the perfect choice for desalination.

Stainless Steel in the Dairy Industry

The modern dairy industry requires the use of cleanable, corrosion-resistant stainless steel equipment to meet the needs of milk product consumers everywhere. The latest brochure in the Sustainable Stainless series explains the role of stainless steels in the dairy industry and how they contribute to a sustainable solution for the human diet.
