Tenova Takes Leading Role in European Steel Technology Platform
The European Steel Technology Platform reconfirmed Tenova CEO Mr Roberto Pancaldi as member of the Board of Directors in the position of Vice President. For the Techint Group company, which has always been committed to developing innovative technologies for a sustainable metals production, ESTEP represents an important framework to actively contribute to the green transition of the European steel industry.
The Platform, which became an independent legal entity in March 2018 with thirteen founding members, has the goal of engaging all stakeholders within the steel sector, from research institutes to industrial players, to implement collaborative actions and innovative projects aimed at addressing the challenges posed by a sustainable growth of the European steel industry. These include decarbonization, circular economy, energy efficiency and digitalization.
Moreover, ESTEP members celebrated an important milestone: the official signing of the Clean Steel Partnership, a public-private partnership developed in the context of the EU goal and policies to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, supporting the European leadership in the transformation of the steel industry into a climate-neutral sector preserving its competitiveness on the global market. Enrico Malfa, Director of Research & Development at Tenova, was appointed as member of the Partnership’s Board.
Tenova not only has a role in the Board, but also plays an operative role in several Focus Groups of ESTEP in order to share experience and know-how on specific topics, actively contributing to and fostering the promoted initiatives. Specifically, the company takes part in the Circular Economy FG, where Mr Enrico Malfa is Chairman, and in the FG Low Carbon & Energy Efficiency FG and Smart Factory FG.
