Celsa Armeringsstål AS is the leading producer of reinforced steel products in the Nordic countries. The plant consist of a steel plant and rolling mill, and is situated in Mo Industrial Park in Mo I Rana. The raw material used in the production mainly consists of scrap metal. The melting of the scrap is done in an electric arc furnace and casted into long billets as a first step in the process. Then the rolling mill rolls the billets to straight and coiled reinforcing bars and wire rod. The bulk of the production is used for concrete reinforcement for the Nordic market. Through the furnace in Mo I Rana, each year we recycle about 700 000 tons of steel scrap. This is equivalent to melting two Eiffel Towers per week.
Celsa Armeringsstål AS is part of the Celsa Nordic. Celsa Nordic also includes Celsa Steel Service (CSS) companies located in Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. CSS sites are responsible for final processing and selling of reinforcement products in their respective country. All the CSS sites operating in the Nordic countries are aware of their responsibility towards the surroundings in which they operate. As major recyclers, we are also particularly committed towards taking care of the environment closest to us and we are aware of the impact it has on the wellbeing of our employees and their families.
We embrace sustainability. Sustainability development is based on the commitment to improve today’s quality of life of our society without compromising the ability to meet the need of future generations. Celsa Nordic has been a pioneer in this area, and already in 1996, Celsa Nordic was the first steel mill to have the ISO:14001. Also in 2012, Celsa Nordic developed the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for the reinforcing steel produced in Mo I Rana. All CSS companies have their own EPD and can present the impact we have in the environment. In addition, Celsa Nordic is currently developing a sustainability roadmap to integrate sustainability polices in the process of making decisions, and to reduce our overall environmental impact. We have defined four sustainability pillars where each one of them have their set of sustainability targets. We believe our mission is to help define steel as an environmentally sound building material, and to help companies improve the environmental credentials of their projects.
