Australia’s own certified sustainable steel

11 December 2023

InfraBuild’s innovative new reinforcing product SENSE 600®, has illustrated the importance of collaboration with academia in the transition to a low emissions future.

SENSE 600® optimises higher strength steel and innovative bar design providing a design solution that uses upto 16.7 percent less raw material yet has the same load capacity as 500N product.

InfraBuild CEO Francisco Irazusta said the partnership with Australian universities was key.

“We’ve combined InfraBuild’s idea and knowledge of customer needs with the technical capabilities of the University of NSW and Monash University, to come up with a product like nothing else in the industry” Mr Irazusta said.

“This illustrates the importance of developing close relationships with academia so we can leverage our different skills and knowledge bases to create sophisticated strategies and solutions to address the future challenges of the construction industry.”

“SENSE 600 will change the industry and we look forward to collaborating on more products into the future that will also help to create a lower emissions future.”

Customers will be able to lower their scope 3 emissions using SENSE 600® which, with its improved sustainability credentials, provides an up to 35 percent reduction in embodied carbon.

Scope 3 emissions are defined as emissions which a company is indirectly responsible for and are increasingly being factored into projects.

InfraBuild is Australia’s largest vertically-integrated, electric arc furnace-based long steel manufacturer and uses 100 percent scrap which means customers are also supporting the Australian economy and local jobs when they use SENSE 600®.

“With 100+ years of continuous operation and our large footprint in Australia, we’re very proud to be a leader in local steelmaking,” Mr Irazusta said.
