Wuppermann’s galvanising process saves 31 % CO2

by David Fleschen

Wuppermann Group has commissioned the renowned Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology (UMSICHT) to investigate
the environmental impact of the Wuppermann Group's Heat-to-Coat strip galvanising process and to compare it with the conventional cold strip galvanising process.

The result: Where the areas of application for galvanised hot strip and galvanised cold strip overlap, i.e.
where it is technically possible to use both cold-rolled and hot-rolled steel for an application, the CO2 balance shows an advantage of the Wuppermann process.
