Manufacturers worldwide strive to reduce weight and costs while advancing sustainability efforts, all without compromising product quality. A key strategy across industries to achieve these goals is lightweighting, and at Charter Steel, we excel in this pursuit.  

The Process Behind Clean Steel  

Clean steel, defined as steel free of detrimental nonmetallic inclusions, ensures superior performance and reliability. Our commitment to providing high-quality steel solutions involves rigorous steelmaking processes aimed at removing and preventing these inclusions, increasing reliability in high-stress applications like mobile, energy, construction and more.  
Our advanced techniques, including leveraging an electric arc furnace (EAF) and stringent process controls, result in 75% less CO2 emissions compared to other steelmaking processes. From Argon rinsing to vacuum degassing, every step, including our value-added processing capabilities and proactive troubleshooting, ensures top-tier, sustainable steel for our customers.
