( Virtual Showroom) Rio-Carb Pty Ltd, a leading innovator in industrial solutions, is making significant strides in promoting environmental sustainability using R-C 700 Chromium Carbide technology. The company's cutting-edge Chromium Carbide solutions not only enhance equipment performance but also contribute to a substantial reduction in Carbon emissions across various industries.

∙    Rio-Carb RC-700 long-life material outlasts Q&T (“400” and “500”) steels x 8 times)

∙    This means 7 x less liner change-outs and subsequent losses from excessive re-cycling.

.     The energy used to re-cycle 1 ton of Steel liberates 2.85 tons of Green House Gas *(GHG), according to The World Steel Association

  .    Therefore, the carbon footprint is reduced by 7 x 2.85= 20 tonnes of GHG or   

      80% less when R-C700 is used.

Key Environmental Benefits:

1.Extended Equipment Lifespan: R-C 700 Chromium Carbide technology in wear-resistant components, such as liner plates, leads to longer equipment lifespans. This results in a reduced need for frequent replacements, ultimately lowering the overall Carbon footprint associated with the manufacturing and disposal of industrial equipment.

2.Decreased Downtime: Enhanced wear resistance means less downtime for maintenance and replacements. Industries utilising Chromium Carbide solutions experience increased operational efficiency, translating to reduced energy consumption and lower Carbon emissions during usage.

3.Minimized Material Consumption: Chromium Carbide's exceptional wear resistance reduces the frequency of material replacements, leading to decreased consumption of raw materials and energy. This not only promotes resource conservation, but also contributes to a more sustainable ecosystem.

4. Improved Energy Efficiency: Industries, such as mining and cement production, benefit from improved energy efficiency as a result of reduced wear on equipment. Chromium Carbide technology enhances the performance of machinery, ensuring that less energy is required to maintain production levels.

5.Waste Reduction: The protective properties of Chromium Carbide technology contribute to less material waste generated from worn-out components. By minimising waste, industries can actively participate in waste reduction initiatives and promote a cleaner, greener environment.


Rio-Carb is committed to providing innovative solutions that not only meet the demands of our industrial partners but also contribute to a sustainable future. Our Chromium Carbide technology represents a significant step towards reducing carbon emissions and fostering environmental responsibility within the industries we serve," says Jabulile Mlambo, Marketing Director at Rio-Carb.
