K-Tec Partners with SSAB for Fossil-Free Steel in Earthmoving Products
Leading heavy-duty earth scraper manufacturer K-Tec and SSAB have reached an agreement for K-Tec to be the first OEM to test SSAB’s Fossil-freeTM️ steel in its earthmoving product line.

K-Tec, a well-known producer of heavy-duty earth scrapers, and SSAB have reached an agreement for K-Tec to be the first OEM in its earthmoving product line to test SSAB’s Fossil-freeTM️ steel. By concentrating on the selection of sustainable materials, K-Tec, a member of the K.A. Group, is making a substantial advancement toward the elimination of carbon emissions.

K-Tec will be able to receive pilot deliveries of SSAB Fossil-freeTM⃏ steel under the terms of this agreement. This steel is made with almost no carbon dioxide emissions during the steelmaking process. The first applications for this cutting-edge steel will be in K-Tec’s main mining and construction products. With this agreement, K-Tec is demonstrating its dedication to lowering its carbon footprint and encouraging environmentally friendly practices, which is a significant step towards sustainability in the heavy machinery industry.

“We are thrilled to have our K-Tec earthmoving equipment brand as the first scraper solution to incorporate SSAB Fossil-freeTM️ steel, continuing our commitment to innovation,” states Dan Pashniak, president and CEO of K.A. Group. Being the first manufacturing partner from Canada to work with SSAB on this important project to lead our industry is also an honor for our company. We are thrilled to collaborate with SSAB in their endeavor to offer environmentally friendly steel solutions in order to get closer to a sustainable future.

K-Tec’s next move to lower emissions and increase sustainability for its clients is this cooperative project. The business already creates, produces, and distributes robust, lightweight earthmoving machinery using SSAB’s performance steel brands, Strenx® and wear steel Hardox®.

Using sturdy, lightweight steel rather than bulky iron allows contractors to move more material, which is a major benefit of K-Tec scrapers. In addition, compared to conventional earthmoving techniques, K-Tec’s high-capacity scrapers enable higher productivity with fewer daily cycles needed, reducing the earthmoving carbon footprint.

According to Johnny Sjöström, Head of Special Steels at SSAB, “this partnership demonstrates the commitment from both companies toward reducing carbon emissions.” “We are happy to have come this far in our journey towards a future free of fossil fuels, and we are well underway in our transformation to change the way steel is made.”
