Scrap Supplements & Alternative Ironmaking 8
2–4 March 2020 • Wyndham Lake Buena Vista • Orlando, Fla., USA
The AIST Direct Reduction Technology Committee is planning a specialty conference titled Scrap Supplements & Alternative Ironmaking 8 to be held in Orlando, Fla. This will be the eighth in a series of symposia on this topic, which began with a highly successful meeting in Myrtle Beach, S.C., in 1993, organized by the Process Technology Division Advanced Technology Committee of AIST’s predecessor, the Iron & Steel Society. This meeting was followed by others in Myrtle Beach in 1996; Trinidad in 1999; and under AIST in Baltimore, Md., in 2004, 2008 and 2012; and most recently in Orlando in 2017.
Please submit abstracts through submission form by 31 August 2019.
These conferences were international in scope and participation, covering activity in research, process and project development, plant construction and start-up of direct reduction and alternative ironmaking processes, and were mainly aimed at supplying virgin iron units to feed the growth of electric furnace flat-rolled steel production worldwide. The 2020 conference will focus on the following areas: successful projects/processes, the challenges of struggling processes, processes still under development, new approaches, and the use of the reduced iron products.
To encourage candid discussion and to accommodate the most recent findings, written manuscripts are not required. Authors are encouraged to make their PowerPoint presentations available to attendees.
