Stainless Steel World Conference

The Stainless Steel World Conference has established itself as the premier international forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience in the manufacture and application of stainless steels. The event contributes to the development of new corrosion-resistant alloys as well as to a better understanding of the most recent trends in the fields of welding, fabrication, surface treatment and materials specification.

The key focus for the conference this year will be discussion, interaction, and knowledge transfer.

Interactive workshops will focus on new alloy developments – challenges and opportunities; welding; additive manufacturing; and modern energies: new possibilities for stainless steels and the contribution of stainless steels to sustainability.

More formal presentations will cover new developments in the manufacture of stainless steels, applications of stainless steel in green energy technologies (solar, wind, hydrogen, etc) as well as varying aspects of corrosion, cladding, automotive, manufacturing, applications, and duplex/super duplex.

Plenaries will address the circular economy and sustainability of the global stainless steel market as well as the use of stainless steels and other corrosion resistant alloys in a variety of industries.

Furthermore a panel of ‘stainless experts’ will also be at hand to solve your technical issues in both the conference and on the expo floor… where a whole spectrum of social events will be interlaced with some surprising twists.


Green Steel Roundtable

Acknowledging the goals of the energy transition, the steel industry is already developing and applying innovative technologies to tackle the low-carbon challenge. In recent years in particular, many steel companies have initiated major projects towards decarbonization, with the aim of becoming carbon neutral by 2050. But what exactly are these manufacturers doing? What new technology is in the pipeline? And how are the requirements of steel buyers changing?

Open to all and formatted as an open forum discussion, The Green Steel Roundtable will be hosted on the Stainless Steel World Expo Hall floor during this years’ Stainless Steel World Conference & Expo. Aperam, Outokumpu, Mannesmann Stainless Tubes GmbH will present and discuss their approach to steel production with minimal carbon emissions.

The first presenter is Juha Erkkilä; Vice President, Group Sustainability, Excellence & Reliability from Outokumpu. He will present “Outokumpu and the full scope of sustainable stainless steel”.
“How to keep business & customer orientation on the industrial Green Steel complexity?” will be presented by Christophe Le Rigoleur: Managing Director, Patrik Schraven: General Manager Marketing and Business Development, Dr.-Ing.Steffen Zimermann: Head of Technical Sales, MPT from Mannesmann Stainless Tubes GmbH.

All show attendees are cordially invited to attend this open-access knowledge platform, where audience engagement will be strongly facilitated and welcome.

The Green Steel Roundtable will take place on Thursday 29 September 2022 at 14:00 on the Expo floor. Timetable will follow.
