Trucks gain efficiency with niobium steels 

In partnership with Brazilian truck parts manufacturer Rossetti, CBMM developed very strong, light dump bodies made of niobium microalloyed steel. At CBMM headquarters in Araxá, ore transport trucks are now equipped with the new lighter bodies, resulting in increased load capacity and reduced transportation costs. In just over two months, return on investment was achieved and the gains keep growing.

One of CBMM's priorities is to excel in water management.

Efforts by the technical staff of CBMM's Process Research Center to reduce the use of fresh water are paying off:  95% of the water currently used in the manufacturing process is recirculated and the goal is to reach 98% in the next two years.
