thyssenkrupp focuses on sustainability at Metpack

thyssenkrupp Rasselstein will be an exhibitor at Metpack this week and will showcase its tinplate made from CO2 -reduced bluemint steel.

“Due to COVID-19, it was regrettably impossible to hold Metpack three years ago. That is why we are all the more pleased to now be able to demonstrate to trade show attendees the products we have developed in recent years and the transformative impact of sustainable rasselstein tinplate on the packaging market,” said Carmen Tschage, Head of Communications and Market Development at thyssenkrupp Rasselstein.

At booth A31 in hall 3, attendees will receive information about rasselstein packaging steel. thyssenkrupp Rasselstein will present a range of products, including tinplate made from bluemint Steel, a CO2-reduced product whose manufacturing process results in up to 69% less carbon dioxide emissions. 

Additionally, the company will highlight details pertaining to its green transformation, which aims to accomplish climate-neutral steel manufacturing by 2045.

Sustainability is also emphasised in other contexts. thyssenkrupp Rasselstein is showcasing innovative packaging steel grades that possess novel material-saving characteristics such as rasselstein D&I Solid, an advanced D&I material used in the production of two-piece food cans. 

This particular material offers the potential for up to 10 percent in material savings. In application of a study on rasselstein Solidflex, trade show attendees will be able to view how many grams of CO2 can be saved by using this innovative packaging steel grade for food and aerosol cans.

Germany’s only tinplate manufacturer is also continually progressing in the realm of digitalisation. 

thyssenkrupp Rasselstein has not only revamped the look of its SteelOnline business platform but also added numerous functionalities to the application. 

In addition, the company’s Packaging Steel app has undergone steady development. Customers can now submit and manage complaints and product notes via an app-integrated utility. 

In the future, rasselstein Express can be configured and ordered according to European Standards in the Packaging Steel Shop. 

“Trade show attendees are invited to observe and test these digital services at our booth,” said Tschage. “We are extremely delighted to finally welcome our customers back to the trade show.”
