Primetals Technologies Names Head of Green Steel

5/18/2022 - Alexander Fleischanderl was appointed the head of Primetals Technologies’ new green steel task force, the company announced today in an official press release.

Primetals Technologies said the goal of the task force is to position the company as the global frontrunner in green steel production solutions.
The company said its main target is to gather and refine “all the information and expertise within the company – and to then communicate it. Another important aim of the new task force is to support the implementation of Primetals Technologies initiatives within the areas of green steel and energy transition.”
“I’m proud of being promoted to this position and I strongly believe that, together with the task force team, this effort will become a game-changer,” Fleischanderl said. “In about ten years it might be quite hard to get a good price for non-green steel. Those who do not invest in green steel today will experience challenges in the future; once that ship has sailed, companies left behind will not be competitive going forward."
Primetals Technologies’ green steel portfolio includes hydrogen, electric steelmaking, carbon capture and utilization, and endless casting and rolling.
