EcoDataCenter first data center to use Alfa Laval heat exchangers with SSAB Zero™ steel.

EcoDataCenter to be an industry first in deploying Alfa Laval heat exchangers made using recycled steel produced without new CO2 emissions from SSAB. This deployment signifies a pivotal moment in the ongoing effort to reduce carbon emissions within the supply chain, exemplifying the significance of collaboration in the journey towards a sustainable future.

- It is crucial for us to leverage innovations together with partners. This underlines the importance of collaborative efforts in mitigating emissions, says Peter Michelson CEO at EcoDataCenter.

The result of a Product Carbon Footprint assessment of the latest datacenter at EcoDataCenter 1 shows that that 60% of the embodied carbon comes from the equipment. The introduction of Alfa Laval heat exchangers made using SSAB Zero™, a recycled steel produced without new CO2 emissions, is a significant step forward in EcoDataCenter's mission to reduce emissions.

- Alfa Laval's commitment to sustainability is further strengthened through our collaboration with EcoDataCenter. By incorporating recycled steel in our heat exchangers, we are not only reducing our own carbon footprint but also driving the entire value chain towards a cleaner and more sustainable future, says Anna Blomborg, Manager Data Center Alfa Laval.

About the steel:

SSAB Zero™ has zero fossil carbon emission (less than 0.05 kg CO2e emissions per kg steel in scope 1 and 2) in operations, including purchased energy and transportation. SSAB practices market-based emission factors for the electricity used and may secure fossil-free electricity through electricity guarantees of origin. Fossil fuels remain in the ground as SSAB has implemented a system to manage and ensure the correct source and use of alternatives connected to the production of SSAB Zero™. Only recycled steel is used as a raw material, which means SSAB Zero™ supports the circular economy. SSAB does not engage in carbon emission offsetting activities.
