    Scrap Supplements and Alt. Ironmaking

Scrap Supplements and Alternative Ironmaking 7


Development and application of alternative ironmaking processes to provide virgin iron units to the electric arc furnace sector, hot metal to steelmaking vessels or to process waste oxides in both blast furnace-based and EAF steel plants.

About the Program

This is the seventh in a series of symposia covering scrap substitutes and alternative ironmaking, which originated with a highly successful meeting in Myrtle Beach, S.C., USA, in 1993. This meeting was followed by others in Myrtle Beach in 1996, Trinidad in 1999 and Baltimore in 2004 and 2008 and 2012. These were initiated by the predecessor Iron & Steel Society’s Process Technology Division’s Advanced Technology Committee, and the previous symposia, which were international in scope and participation, were associated with a high level of activity in research, process and project development, plant construction and start-up of direct reduction and alternative ironmaking processes. This symposium will focus on the following areas: successful projects/processes, the challenges of struggling processes, processes still under development and new approaches, and use of products.

Who Should Attend

Those engaged in the production, sale, and use of direct reduced iron, pig iron and scrap; managers and engineers from electric furnace and blast furnace–based steel companies, suppliers of iron ore, coal, and natural gas; steel company, engineering company, academic and research institute personnel engaged in ironmaking process development.
