The SinterCast Value Chain

STEP 1: Operating Responsibility – SinterCast Operations


Our sourcing consists primarily of electronic components, sampling consumables and server capacity.

    • >90% sourced within Sweden
    • Total steel consumption <25 tonnes/yr
    • No exotic or conflict materials
    • No human rights risks

As a supplier of process control technology and know-how, we don't have in-house production. Our activities primarily consist of:

    • Software development
    • Assembly of process control systems
    • Quality control checks on consumables
    • 100% renewable energy at Technical Centre

Our cumulative shipping volume is limited, typically less than two or three cargo containers per year.

    • Shipments predominantly ex-works, mode decided by customer
    • >95% of business travel in economy class

STEP 2: Enabling Reduced Climate Impact – In the Foundry

Raw Material Sourcing:

Reduced weight with CGI means less metal melted, less sand, less water, less energy, less CO2 and less transportation demand – both for raw materials and finished products.

    • 10–20% less raw materials
    • 10–20% less waste water
    • 10–20% less energy and emissions
CGI Block & Head Production:

Right-First-Time means less scrap, less metal melted, less energy and less CO2.

    • Reduced weight
    • Reduced scrap
    • Improved mould yield
    • Reduced transportation
    • Reduced energy
    • Increased profitability

STEP 3: Enabling Reduced Climate Impact – On the Road

Passenger Vehicles:

Compared to the nearest available petrol engine, SinterCast-CGI engines provide:

    • 10–30% less fuel consumption; up to 40% when towing
    • 10–30% less CO2 emissions
Commercial Vehicles:

Compared to the previous generation of engines, SinterCast-CGI engines provide:

    • 10–30% reduced weight
    • Significant reductions in CO2, NOx and particulate emissions
    • Improved pulling power and fewer vehicle miles
Compared to 1988, when SinterCast started its business activities, one commercial vehicle engine generated the same greenhouse emissions as 80 present-day SinterCast-CGI engines.
