Harsco Celebrates World Environment Day by Spotlighting Environmental Solutions
In recognition of World Environment Day, Harsco
Corporation (NYSE: HSC), a global market leading provider of
environmental solutions for industrial and specialty waste streams,
today announces its continued commitment to improving
sustainability and protecting our environment through beneficial
Since 1974, the United Nations has designated June 5 as
World Environment Day to engage governments, businesses and
citizens in an effort to address pressing environmental issues.
“Our corporate vision is to be a global leader of environmental
solutions by solving today’s biggest waste challenges,” said Nick
Grasberger, Chairman & CEO of Harsco Corporation. “The
accomplishments of Clean Earth and Harsco Environmental further
support our pursuit of this goal every day and our path towards
providing customers with more sustainable solutions, giving purpose
to Harsco’s present and defining our future.”
The launch of SteelPhalt’s carbon-negative asphalt product
exemplifies Harsco Corporation’s commitment to environmental
solutions in 2022. SteelPhalt is a part of Harsco Corporation’s
Harsco Environmental division.
SteelPhalt’s asphalt products use 95 percent recycled steel slag
along with bitumen. Conventional asphalt products use bitumen, an
oil-based product with a significant carbon footprint, to bind the
asphalt. However, the business recently launched a new product that
is carbon negative.
Called SteelSurf ECO+, the new product uses kraft lignin-based
Lineo®, which is a renewable bio-based substance, to replace a
portion of bitumen as the product’s binder. Lignin comes from trees
and is supplied by GautamZenUK in collaboration with Stora
SteelSurfECO+ is also produced at reduced mixing temperatures
compared to traditional asphalt. This reduced mixing temperature
means that the amount of energy required to manufacture the product
is lower. Ultimately, SteelSurf ECO+ is a carbon-negative asphalt
product that delivers customers the skid resistance and durability
that they expect.
The new ECO+ range of products helps further reduce an industry
leading low carbon footprint product range, that was already more
sustainable than traditional asphalt due to the beneficial reuse of
"Introducing the world's first carbon-negative steel slag
aggregate-based asphalt using lignin binder product made from trees
is an example of how Harsco continually innovates in creating
sustainable solutions, leading the industry to a greener place,”
said Martin Gray, SteelPhalt Managing Director. "The whole team at
SteelPhalt is passionate about continuing our journey to become the
world's most sustainable asphalt supplier."
