Arcelor Mittal glass & steel to consume 6,000 T of steel
Arcelor Mittal will use 6,000 tonnes of steel to build its glass and steel headquarters at Luxembourg. With USD 80 billion annual turnover and 93 million tonne (MT) of output, the steel giant is set to start the construction of the new green building next year.
Huge quantity of recycled steel will be consumed in headquarters building and this headquarters could easily be shifted to any other place if required. The building is also a low-carbon, energy-efficient building and the company said its environmental credentials include solar power generation – featuring 4000 square metres of Arcelor Mittal steel photo voltaic cells on the roof – rain water management, and automatic window opening for natural ventilation.
Arcelor Mittal in December last year had elected a design from Wilmotte & Associés (W&A) for its global headquarters. W&A was selected by a nine-person jury chaired by Aditya Mittal following a competitive process with designs proposed by many of the world’s leading architects.
