Continuous Casting of Steel - Basic Course
- online seminar -
Aug 17th, 2021 – Aug 18th, 2021
Steel is the no 1 material in the world of technology. About 96% of all the total steel production is cast continuously. Automobiles, machines and countless parts of daily live are made of steel. New and innovative high-performance steel grades are created and combine several properties on a high level of quality. Plant design and casting processes are continuously developed.
The aim of the seminar is, starting from the electrical basics of the arc furnace, to present to the participants the current state of automation technology and to point out future-oriented technologies. In connection with this, economic aspects are also considered and illustrated by practical examples.
- Supervisors responsible for decisions on metallurgy, energy, strategy, environmental protection
- Analysts, stake holders and decision makers in energy transition, low carbon economy and decarbonization
- Staffs on blast furnace, R&D and raw materials
The seminar places the emphasis on a wide overview on the subject: the first day covers the fundamentals and conditions for hydrogen-based iron ore reduction. The lectures of the second day round off the programme with practical approaches on dif-ferent industrial plant concepts.
