At the heart of the energy-intensive industry: The ThyssenKrupp steel mill in Duisburg

Kaiser-Wilhelm-Straße 100
Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia

Thyssen Krupp's business area 'Steel Europe' is one of the world’s leading suppliers of carbon steel flat products. With around 27,000 employees and highly efficient facilities, the company produces over 13 million tonnes of crude steel per year – making it Germany’s largest flat steel manufacturer. The Duisburg mill is the heart of the company—its location on the Rhine has been invaluable ever since the site was founded in 1891.

 The energy and carbon-intensive steel manufacturing process is at the heart of any debate over how heavy industries can be transformed in line with the requirements of the Paris Climate Accord.
