12th European Electric Steelmaking Conference
Organised by IOM Communications on behalf of the Iron and Steel Society of IOM3
The key aim of this 12th European Electric Steelmaking Conference is to provide a forum at which steelmakers, product specialists, and all other parts of the steel sector supply chain (including the academic community and research and technology organisations) can come together to share information and exchange knowledge on current and future developments across the broad spectrum of electric arc furnace steelmaking and its associated technologies.
The conference will have 5 principal technology-based themes each of which is outlined below:
Plant: New plant and technology
Plant enhancement technologies
Greenfield sites (vs established)
Process: Metallurgy of Electric Arc Steelmaking
Refractory and synthetic slag development
Raw materials choice to maximise yield and efficiency
Process modelling i.e. scrap charge and melt predictions etc
Environment & Safety: Sustainable steel production
Recovery of process wastes
Safety and Compliance
Energy: Waste Heat recovery
Use of Chemical energy
Industry 4.0: Automation
Integration of systems
A range of sponsorship and exhibition packages will be available. The programme will be structured so that there will be ample opportunities for sponsors and exhibitors to interact with conference delegates.
The conference will be followed by plant tours to one of the three special steel plants in the local area i.e. Sheffield Forgemasters, Liberty Speciality and Outokumpu Sheffield. These steelmakers produce a wide range of steel specifications from low carbon general machining steels to stainless and heat resisting alloy steels.
