~Revolutionizing Steel Manufacturing Towards a Net-Zero Future~

Organised by Steel Times International, the Future Steel Forum is set to take place from 17th to 19th June in Stockholm, Sweden, uniting industry leaders and innovators in a groundbreaking exploration of technology’s role in sustainable steel manufacturing.

In the heart of Stockholm from the 17th to 19th June, the Future Steel Forum unfolds as a testament to the steel industry’s dynamic evolution. Curated by the visionary editorial team of Steel Times International, this event is a cornerstone for those at the forefront of technological innovation in steel manufacturing. With a special focus on sustainability, the Future Steel Forum is not just an event but a collaborative effort towards a greener future.

This year, we delve into the core of innovation—how artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, automation, and sustainable practices are not just shaping, but revolutionizing steel manufacturing.

Day One: A Journey of Discovery

The inaugural day sets the stage for an immersive experience. Kanthal and its parent company Alleima invite you to embark on a factory tour that shines a spotlight on sustainable steelmaking practices. This site visit goes beyond a mere walkthrough; it is an enlightening journey that showcases the meticulous efforts and innovations aimed at reducing the environmental impact of steel production. Participants will gain firsthand insights into the practices that pave the way for a sustainable future in steel manufacturing, emphasizing the industry’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.

Exploring the Horizon of Steel Manufacturing Innovation

The subsequent days are dedicated to meticulously curated conference sessions, spearheaded by the adept Steel Times International editorial team. These sessions delve into the revolutionary roles of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and automation in steel manufacturing. The discussion extends to how these cutting-edge technologies are catalysing efficiency improvements, quality enhancement, and sustainability in the sector.

The narrative of decarbonising steel emerges as a focal point, reflecting a global imperative. The transition towards net-zero emissions in the steel industry is not just a goal; it’s a necessity to combat climate change and align with the Paris Agreement objectives. The reports underscore the significance of transitioning to low-carbon steelmaking technologies and the crucial role of the entire value chain, including financiers, suppliers, and policymakers, in supporting this transformation. By 2050, the ambition is to significantly reduce the steel sector’s greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to a sustainable and resilient global economy.
