BSH Hausgeräte GmbH is one of the world’s leading home appliance companies and the largest home appliance manufacturer in Europe. They are also a long standing customer – and partner – of Aperam.
Today, this partnership becomes even stronger, with BSH choosing Aperam infinite™ near-zero carbon premium stainless steel for use in its dishwasher manufacturing.
“It is important for us to offer consumers more sustainable solutions,” says Lars Schubert, Chief Operating Officer – BSH Home Appliances Group. “With our broad product portfolio of energy-efficient and water-saving home appliances, circular business models and more and more products with more sustainable and environmentally friendly materials, we offer a solution for every situation in life – also thanks to strong partners like Aperam.”
In choosing Aperam infinite™, which has up to 47% lower carbon footprint than our standard grades, BSH is able to further advance its sustainability journey.
“Our near-zero CO₂ products were designed with the customer in mind, and we are thrilled to have BSH as a partner to use and promote this new product line,” said Aperam CEO Tim Di Maulo. “We look forward to demonstrating how these low-emission products enable companies like BSH to reduce their carbon footprints, sustainably make products for their own customers, and become an important link in the responsible value chain.”
Aperam is particularly proud of the fact that BSH was involved in the Aperam infinite™ project from the very beginning – participating in the discussions and work to develop this unique product line capable of allowing end users to achieve a significant reduction in their carbon footprint.
“Day-by-day and in collaboration with our partners and customers, we are building a robust circular system – one that encompasses the entire stainless steel value chain – with the aim of closing the loop as much as we can,” added Di Maulo.
Designed for today – and the future
Aperam infinite™ is designed for today and the future. While it currently includes a number of grades, including 304 for austenitic and multiple ferritic grades, the company plans to gradually expand the product range and ramp up production volumes.
In Europe, Aperam infinite™ is made with up to 98% recycled material content and achieves up to an 85% reduction in CO₂ emissions compared to industry standards.
