Arcorox® and XCarb®: the perfect, sustainable match
When designed with Arcorox® weathering steel together with XCarb® recycled and renewably produced, a bridge meets all cost, design and strength requirements, while achieving tomorrow’s most stringent embodied carbon and safety targets.
A bridge with Arcorox® sections is designed to last: no need for a protective coating now or in the future: maintenance is low, safety and usage remain high.
A bridge with XCarb® recycled and renewably produced steel is sustainable: to produce it, ArcelorMittal uses up to 100 percent scrap and electricity from renewable sources such as solar and wind power. Its carbon footprint as low as 0.3 tonnes of CO2e per tonne of steel product when using 100% scrap, is supported by a published environmental product declaration.
All you need to know about the pedestrian bridge
The bicycle and pedestrian bridge, linking Esch-sur-Alzette to Esch-Belval, will be the longest one of its kind in Europe (1.2km long, 4.5m wide, at 7.5m from ground). The main segment between Esch/Alzette and Belval is expected to be completed this year. It will adapt to its environment and be built to fit into the existing landscape.
The order is made up of three lots of steel products, some topped with impressive fabrication work. However every single tonne of steel has been requested – and will be delivered – in our innovative range of Arcorox® weathering steel, with the low CO2 emissions of XCarb® recycled and renewably produced label.
