Arsolar®, a solar panel designed and made by ArcelorMittal, wins an innovation award.
As well as wind turbine towers, ArcelorMittal invests in developing other solutions to produce clean energy. During the 2007 Batimat, the world’s biggest construction fair, ArcelorMittal was awarded a Golden Innovation Medal for Arsolar®, a solar panel designed and marketed by ArcelorMittal construction.
The 26th Batimat focused on sustainable development and Arsolar® is a great example of an ecological product that can be used in the building sector. It converts the sun’s rays into electrical energy and reduces the energy consumption in buildings, which helps save money and protect the environment. The steel support itself can be 100% recycled after its use, demonstrating that innovation and sustainability go hand in hand at ArcelorMittal.
