In the steel plant the Group produces continuous casting semi – products, round, square and rectangular section.
The production process generate salso a by-product called Blackstone, intended for reuse in construction as a substrate for bitominous and cementious conglomerates; this “waste” product that is reused, is a perfect example of a circular economy in steel production.
The plant has a rail link of over 5 kilometers, which connects it to the national railways line.
By the end of 2022, the new beam rolling mill is expected to go into operation, which will complete the verticalization of the product in San Zeno: a plant built with the best available technologies and with minimum environmental impact thanks to energy efficiency solutions and use of renewable energies
