Swedish steel maker SSAB and South Korean POSCO Group. Together with South Korean POSCO, SSAB is organizing a Hydrogen Iron & Steel Making Forum 2022 in Stockholm on 12-13 October. The focus of the event is to provide a forum where steelmakers can promote collaboration and share advice, ideas and expertise to tackle the global climate change. SSAB CEO Mr Martin Lindqvist said “The global climate change issue cannot be tackled by individual actions alone. Leading steel companies must work closely together to share experiences and take appropriate measures to mitigate climate change as quickly as possible.”The purpose of the Forum is to provide an overview of global climate change and discuss policies to reduce greenhouse gases, hydrogen iron and steelmaking technology, and progress updates of ongoing initiatives in hydrogen ironmaking technology. At the Forum global steelmakers and stakeholders alike will hold in-depth discussions on three main topics:Transition to near zero emission steel makingValue chain for near zero emission steelScience and technology policy for near zero emission steelThe focus is to provide a forum where steelmakers can promote collaboration and share advice, ideas and expertise on developing innovative technology to achieve carbon neutrality as well as to share experiences and roadmaps of the transformation for the industry. Steel plays a critical role in developing industries and building communities. One can say our world is built using steel, which is why it is used in every aspect of our lives. It’s 100% recyclable, strong, durable, and compared to other materials, requires relatively low amounts of energy to make. However, the steel industry remains a significant source of CO2 emissions and global warming. Our planet needs more action to continue to reduce emissions. SSAB has been in forefront of sustainability for years, and recently strengthened its position as the leader in the green transition in the steel industry.
