Scana is an environmentally friendly enterprise and produces some of the cleanest steel there is. This steel is utilized in our products and by our customers. Our starting point is scrap metal that, through our processes, is turned into high quality products. It is our goal to have as small an impact on the environment as possible, irrespective of where in the world we do business.
Scana manufacture and work with, among other things, steel and other alloys. We realize that as a player in this market, we contribute both considerably to recycling – and produce discharges to the outer environment. It is a fact that the world needs steel, and we see it as our task to supply as cleanly a processed product as possible, avoiding negative impact on the environment.
Steel production is in essence a recycling industry, where a lot of scrap metal is recycled. On the other hand, energy is spent in recycling.
Scana Steel Björneborg meets the goals of the Scana group, having the smallest possible impact on the environment. As a concrete measure, scrap steel is recycled, chiefly collected from local suppliers, at a distance of maximum 150 km. The company is ISO 9001 certified.
Scana Steel Björneborg has a railroad track leading into the production area and can deliver products by rail. This means of transport reduces emissions to air.
The company is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified, and is named by FOSECO as the most environmental friendly foundry in Europe. This claim is built upon our choice of forming sand, binding agents and hardeners. The company continually employs new routines to reduce negative impact on the environment, be it waste management, filtering and reductions. Measurements are done regularly according to international standards. In 2011, a new sea based depot for sand from the production process was opened to reduce discharges and transport.
The environmental impact from Söderfors is mainly through emissions to air and water, in addition to waste. Throughout the year, Söderfors has fulfilled all government demands and there has been no incidents or unwanted discharges. During 2010, Scana Steel Söderfors worked on updating our environmental handbook, targeted towards an ISO 14001 certification. Among other things, this entails strengthening our routines for handling chemicals and deciding which ones to utilize in the company.
Booforge works determinedly towards modernising and reducing any negative impact on the environment. In the recent years, the company has made rather large environmental changes and also changed production routines. We are also changing to lessen energy consumption.
Booforge continually measures our oil consumption to incite lower consumption and make production more effective.
Scana Machining adheres to ISO 9001 and 14001, plus to military quality and environmental standards. In addition to safety for employees, the company works with energy optimization for manufacture, buildings and factory facilities. In 2011, the company carried out necessary investments to connect to the municipal remote heating system, in order to reduce use of oil for heating.
Leshan Scana is situated in the middle of a Chinese region of about four million people. The company was earlier an old state driven business, responsible for a great deal of pollution, mainly because everything was coal based. Around the turn of millennium the company converted to electrical and gas power, and by the end of 2007, a dust collection system was installed on the entire facility. The company runs entirely on hydropower generated from a nearby river. Scana’s environmental initiative in China runs at a high global level, and could have been transferred anywhere in the world.
For measurements and so-called non-destructive testing (NDT), the steel companies use chemicals in controlled environments to verify the surface of steel constructions. Chemicals are disposed as special waste. The companies are preoccupied with good control over chemical usage.
Scana’s marine business area consists mainly of high-technological manufacture, having little or no negative impact on the environment.
Scana Volda’s production yields products that are contributing to the protection and safeguard of the environment, crew and load. Among our products, we find emergency electromotors for chemical tankers and flexible solutions to make engines run more environmentally friendly. Optimisation of engine usage is a continuing ambition for the company.
The company further develops with regard to future environmental and market related requirements through our co-
operation with Scana Volda’s gear and propeller technology and remote controlled systems from Scana Mar-El.
The production of hydraulic actuators and systems at Skarpenord yields no negative discharges. The waste from the production is scrap iron/metal and is sold as scrap metal. This is both environmentally friendly and provides income. The company mainly uses electrical power for the production, but some diesel fuel is used for heating the production halls.
Scana Offshore Technology repairs equipment and is ISO 9001 certified. Our activity has very little negative impact on the outer environment, but we continually monitor how our activity may have an impact on the environment.
The company has today no negative discharges or emissions to the environment, neither water, nor air. With regard to thermal treatment, the company now builds new premises according to present regulations. Offshore Vestby is a competence and design company that has no negative impact on the outer environment.
Scana Offshore Services performs service and repairs on drilling equipment. Work is done by subvendors, while project administration and engineering is done by the company. The company has stringent demands for HES with our subvendors and follows up and inspects work according to current HES regulations.
The group consists of companies that affect the outer environment through noise and discharges/emissions. The group is licenced for its activities and the impact on the environment is not regarded as exceeding the discharge permissions. The group works continually to reduce discharges/emissions, waste to deposits and other negative environmental impact. Residue from the production is waste managed and handled according to regulations, in addition to being recycled when applicable. The companies within the steel business area buy large quantities of scrap for remelting, and
are thereby also prominent in the recycling industry.
