VDMA Metallurgy TechTALK
20 January 2022

Today's steel production is both a driver and a roadblock for sustainable industrial production. Just because the leverage of CO2 avoidance in steel production is so important, the industry will move towards net zero carbon and is already doing so comprehensively. Iron and steelmaking is in the spotlight and will be measured against its own sustainability promise. Come and meet to explore the technical horizons of green steel production.

VDMA Metallurgy and the world's largest trade fair for metallurgical equipment technology – GMTN / Gifa METEC Thermprocess Newcast, Düsseldorf/Germany – cordially invite you to the
