The Sustainable Steel Strategies Summit 2021, brought to you by the makers of the Future Steel Forum and Steel Times International, is shaping up to be an exciting one-day virtual event aimed exclusively at the global steelmaking industry.
Steelmakers around the world reel at the thought of being ‘the climate bad guys,’ but the fact remains that they are one of the largest emitters of environmental pollutants such as greenhouse gases and fine dust. That said, the industry has never been one to sit on its laurels and do nothing about it. Great inroads have been made over many years into developing technologies designed to make the steelmaking process as green as possible – and that great work is ongoing.
Did you know that producing one ton of liquid steel using Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) and an Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) produces at least 50% less CO2 than the conventional Blast Furnace/Blast Oxygen Furnace route? Most steel produced in the USA comes out of an EAF.
Steelmakers in Europe are hard at work developing new ways to produce carbon-lean steels: think of the Hybrit Initiative from SSAB and other hydrogen-based technologies, like thyssenkrupp’s green hydrogen and green power plan based on the concept of ‘blast furnace 2.0’. Salzgitter is looking at renewable energy sources for its blast furnaces. Liberty Steel is realising it's Greensteel Vision, Tata Steel Europe is busy with its Hlsarna project. Every self-respecting steelmaker is doing its bit to make the process cleaner and reduce emissions.
But how are they doing this and what timescales are they working to? Well, that’s what the Sustainable Steel Strategies Summit is all about. Come and listen to what the steelmakers themselves have to say about climate change and how they intend to make greener steel in the near future.
And if you work for a global steelmaker and would like to present a paper at the Summit, then please see the Call for Abstracts panel at the bottom of this page, the abstracts submission date is Friday 2nd April 2021.
