The aim of this project is to collect and compare environmental data for steel products in order to generate data of good quality for each of the Nordic countries. This study gives the environmental data for the production of reinforcement bars and steel products in the Nordic countries together with a short description of the processes. The data are compared and variations are discussed. It has not been possible to allocate the collected data to a single raw material or a single process that would have made the discussion easier. To facilitate the comparison, environmental data for the production of electricity have been excluded, because the production methods differ in the Nordic countries. To show the importance of different factors to the energy consumption, the Danish results have been recalculated and include data for the production of electricity.
