    Scrap Supplements and Alt. Ironmaking

Scrap Supplements and Alternative Ironmaking 9


Development and application of alternative ironmaking processes to provide virgin iron units to the electric arc furnace (EAF) sector or 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 ninth 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 initiated by the Advanced Technology Committee, which belonged to the Process Technology Division of the Iron & Steel Society (an AIST predecessor). This symposium, which is international in scope and participation, is 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 and those still under development including 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; and steel company, engineering company, academic and research institute personnel engaged in ironmaking process development.

Bring Your Own Young Professional (BYOYP) Program

AIST recently launched the Bring Your Own Young Professional (BYOYP) program to encourage our members to help boost the next generation’s involvement in AIST and the steel industry.
