About the Program
The production and use of direct reduced iron (DRI) in North America is increasing with the reduced price of natural gas due to advances in drilling technology. As such, DRI is becoming a more important feedstock to the steelmaking process. This conference will focus on areas that include: raw materials and DRI handling and shipping; technologies to produce DRI; and the use of DRI to produce steel in electric arc furnaces (EAFs), blast furnaces and basic oxygen furnaces (BOFs).
Who Should Attend
Those engaged in the production, sale and use of DRI; managers and engineers from EAF, BOF and blast furnace operations; suppliers of iron ore, coal and natural gas; steel company, engineering company, academic and research personnel engaged in ironmaking process development.
