EU: Steel welded pipe EU 2018 worldsteel. 1kg
Welded pipe. A flat plate steel coil that is bended and welded into a tube. It can be found on the market for final use.
A heavy-wall pipe is technically used to transport fluids (e.g. oil, gases, water, chemicals).
This dataset includes raw material extraction (e.g. coal, iron, ore, etc.) and processing, e.g. scrap, coke making, sinter, blast furnace, basic oxygen furnace, electric arc furnace, hot strip mill, cold rolling mill. Details on the steel product manufacturing route can be found in Appendix 1 of the 2017 worldsteel LCA Methodology Report. The steelmaking processes are shown in the flow diagram. Inputs included in the Life Cycle Inventory relate to all raw material inputs, including steel scrap, energy, water, and transport. Outputs include steel and other co-products, emissions to air, water and land. Further information is given in the 2017 worldsteel LCA Methodology Report. External scrap input includes approx. 2% scrap from manufacturing/fabrication processing. This LCI does not include a credit for recycling of steel at end of life and a burden for steel scrap input during production. This is the preferred approach adopted by worldsteel, detailed in the 2017 methodology report (Appendix 2).
