A fascinating material

Steel life cycle – Scrap (photo)


Steel is the most versatile material in the world. Hard or soft, malleable or rigid, liquid or solid, red hot or ice cold—steel takes on different roles and changes its colors, qualities, and surfaces.

Steel inspires and fascinates us over and over again.

The photographs in this Corporate Responsibility Report are all from the production process of voestalpine. They give us insight into the many different forms that steel can have in the course of its life cycle—from production to processing and finally to recycling.
