Materials Technology Day

Sustainable Steel

14 oktober 2021 14:00 t/m 17:00 - Locatie: Online

Steel is all around us. Steel is in our cars, trains, bridges, houses, food and drink packages and in many more products. Our society cannot do without steel. At the same time, the current production method of steel leads to pollutions, in particular significant global warming gases to the environment. For a better future of our society, steel has to be made in a cleaner and more sustainable manner. Sustainable and “green” steel will not harm our environment and benefits our society at large. During this year’s Materials and Technology Day we will review the challenges ahead from different perspectives. We consider practical innovations needed and the directions required of our combined efforts to green steel.
