Green foundry challenge – stony path towards climate neutrality


Castings are indispensable to sustainable and climate-neutral manufacturing. There is no sector of industry that could do without cast components of iron, steel or NF-metals ranging from aluminium to zinc. For export sectors such as automotive and machine tool production the foundry industry is a key sector within their value chains.
