Scholz Holding GmbH

In Austria the Scholz Group runs a network of 12 facilities with approx. 270 employees. The Austrian group – founded in 2006 as a Joint Venture of voestalpine AG and Scholz Holding GmbH - arose from a merger of several Austrian recycling companies.

In 2010 the Austrian Scholz Group generated revenues of approx. 380 million Euro with a total tonnage of roughly 1.1 million. By substituting primary commodities with secondary material the emission of 1.2 tons CO2 per ton of steel produced can be saved. Thus, in 2010 the Austrian Scholz Group prevented the emission of roughly 1.2 Million tons of CO2.
