Salzgitter wants to shut down blast furnaces - radical change planned

Salzgitter. In Salzgitter the blast furnaces should now be switched off. The steel production in Salzgitter is supposed to be more climate-friendly – and that’s why the steelmaker is planning “Salzgitter AG” a blatant change.

By the middle of 2030, the embers should no longer glow in the blast furnaces – and a completely different production process should be used. The blast furnaces in Salzgitter should now be on the mend. The steel group wants to completely convert production.

Production conversion in the billions
