A ‘Green Steel’ Alternative
Rio-Carb’s R-C700 long-life liner plate offers the benefit of significantly reduced greenhouse (GHG) emissions for its customers. This is because the liners, featuring a chromium carbide (CrC) overlay, outlast quenched and tempered products by a factor of eight. Therefore the carbon footprint of this ‘green steel’ is seven times smaller per application, translating into a significant 80% reduction.
“An indirect benefit due to its immediate and obvious carbon reduction is that transportation of all implied products is reduced by the same factor, thus saving significantly on indirect emissions,” comments Rio-Carb Design Engineer Roshalan Govender.
