Tokyo Steel Launches a New Era of Green Steel with enso Brand

Tokyo Steel Japan has announced the launch of its new proprietary green steel brand, enso. The enso circle, deeply symbolic in Japanese culture, represents eternity, infinity, harmony, balance, and the cyclical nature of life. This symbolism underscores Tokyo Steel’s dedication to the circular economy through its products. The enso logo, transitioning from charcoal to green, highlights the company’s evolution from carbon-intensive production to green steel. Advancing Low Carbon Production Tokyo Steel achieves lower embodied carbon emissions by employing electric arc production using recycled steel scrap and highly efficient operating processes, eliminating emission-intensive steps typical in traditional blast furnace methods. The initial enso product range includes Hot Rolled Coil (HRC) and Hot Rolled Plate (HRP), with future plans to expand downstream. Comparatively, enso HRC embodies approximately one-third of the carbon emissions of market-leading EU blast furnace producers, while enso HRP embodies about one-fifth. Tokyo Steel has consistently supplied these low-carbon products to the EU market, catering to growing demand from construction, manufacturing, and renewable energy industries. Future Innovations and Expansion To further enhance the enso range, Tokyo Steel plans to introduce an ultra-low-carbon emissions product manufactured using 100% renewable energy, expected to be available later in 2024.
