11th European Electric Steelmaking Conference and Expo (EEC) 2016 Venice

  • Conference Call
  • Asso­ci­azione Ital­iana di Met­al­lur­gia (AIM), the Ital­ian Soci­ety for Met­al­lurgy, has the honor to host once more the pres­ti­gious Elec­tric Steel­mak­ing Con­fer­ence and Expo (EEC) 2016, after the suc­cess­ful events of Flo­rence (1986) and Venice (2002). The Con­fer­ence, together with the exhi­bi­tion, will be held in Venice, Italy at the mag­nif­i­cent Fon­dazione Cini on May 2527, 2016.

    Nowa­days, the frac­tion of the total world steel pro­duc­tion com­ing from elec­tric arc fur­naces is up to 35% and we wit­ness a non-​stop tech­ni­cal devel­op­ment of the elec­tric arc process and its aux­il­iary equip­ment. All these trends require a bet­ter coop­er­a­tion of steel­mak­ing oper­a­tors in focus­ing the atten­tion on increase of pro­duc­tiv­ity, decrease of envi­ron­men­tal impact and improve­ment of steel quality.

    More­over, the cou­pling of such tech­nol­ogy with new plant based on direct reduc­tion of iron ores make elec­tric fur­nace an inter­est­ing facil­ity not only for a pro­duc­tion route based on steel scrap recy­cling but also for a flex­i­ble exploita­tion of min­eral resources.

    The 11th Euro­pean Elec­tric Steel­mak­ing Con­fer­ence & Expo aims at pro­vid­ing a forum for infor­ma­tion trans­fer of the lat­est tech­niques and appli­ca­tions in elec­tric fur­nace steel­mak­ing and at bring­ing together steel pro­duc­ers, research and aca­d­e­mics active in steel­mak­ing indus­tries, energy pro­duc­tion and plant sup­ply concerns.
