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
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
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.
