KEY BENEFITS & FEATURES

Quality

J Steel and Arcelor Mittal are accredited to ISO9001 and ISO 14001. The stringent requirements regarding rail characteristics and performance led to the implementation of a total quality control system designed to guarantee the characteristics of the final product.

The rolling mills have obtained certification from many international companies with a wide range of standards including Australian Specification AS 1085.1 Environment

Environmental

Approximately 25% of the steel used for rail production comes from recycled steel, leading to a considerable reduction in the consumption of raw materials and energy.

The use of railways presents a significant decrease in the consumption of fossil fuels compared to other modes of transport such as cars. The CO2 emissions are much lower. At the end of the rail life cycle, it is again fully recycled as scrap without losing any of its properties thus reducing the consumption of natural resources.
