Sweden’s Lindab will source fossil-free steel from SSAB (a Swedish steelmaker) for making ventilation systems and building products.
Both companies take another step in their partnership and will work together on the introduction of SSAB´s fossil-free steel to Lindab
In 2026, SSAB plans to supply the market with fossil-free steel at a commercial scale after converting its Oxelösund blast furnaces into an electric arc furnace and using iron made with the Hybrit (Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology). SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall created the Hybrit technology in 2016 to develop fossil-free iron and steelmaking technology.
Lindab is a leading European ventilation company that develops, manufactures, markets and distributes energy-efficient ventilation products. It operates in 24 countries, and total sales reached SEK 9,166 million in 2020.
Buildings account for 40% of all energy consumption. One of Lindab’s goals is to reduce the environmental impact from its customers by offering leading energy-efficient products and systems with a high degree of recycling. Energy-efficient solutions also reduce customers’ environmental impact and operating costs.
Martin Lindqvist, President and CEO of SSAB, said, “Together, we are contributing to reduced carbon dioxide emissions in the building – and ventilation sector as well as strengthening the competitiveness while maintaining the high quality of the products.”
Ola Ringdahl, President and CEO of Lindab, “For us at Lindab, fossil-free steel is central to our sustainability work. It is the single action that has the greatest effect on the environment.”
