Arc Metal has invested in increased heat recycling capacity. The investment has been co-funded by Swedish environmental protection agency by the initiative “Klimatklivet” (“Step for climate”). A partner in the investment has been the local energy provider Värmevärden . The excess heat from Arc Metals furnaces will be used in Värmevärdens local heating system on the industrial area were Arc Metal is located.
With this new investment Arc Metal has the possibility to increase the recycled energy five times. The total capacity of recycled energy corresponds to the annual consumption of 50 houses or 75 000 kg CO2-equvalents.
