At Safal Steel, we’re all about sustainability. Our entire process, from beginning to end, is produced as gently as possible, always looking forward to building a future of human flourishing and construction longevity. With nearly 40% of global ferrous resources coming from recycled steel, we’re trying to give steel the green footprint it deserves.
The Safal Group was the first producer of aluminium-zinc coated steel in Africa. We are now the sole African licensor of this patented coating technology, that has been recognised as the world’s most advanced alloy delivering an extended service life to steel.
Sustainability is a Core Focus
At Safal Steel, we aim to have a minimum impact on the environment by ensuring a stringent Sustainability Production Methodology is always followed. Our impact on global warming is therefore minimal, due to the following activities:
1. Our Metal Coating Line uses a Recuperator Unit. This means that the unused heat from the furnace is utilised for combustion. Emissions are therefore reduced and the released air is cooler.
2. Our Colour Coating Line uses a Thermal Oxidising Unit. This means that the extracted volatiles from the paint are utilised as a fuel for combustion. This results in a reduction in both volatility and temperature.
3. Our Production Plant has its own Sewerage Treatment Plant and Reverse Osmosis Plant, meaning that all water is treated and re-used in the processing divisions. Safal Steel does not release any waste water to the municipality.
4. All waste steel is recycled. This means that of all waste produced, up to 95% is recycled.
