Vision: CO2 free ferroalloy production

Topics for discussion:

  • Emissions and Reduced CO2 (New technologies and processes)

  • Mn- alloys (Production and operation, Raw materials, Pre-treatment technologies, tapping, Process fundamentals, Process modelling, refining, casting, energy efficiency and recovery

  • FeCr and FeNi alloys (Production and operation, Raw materials, Pre-treatment technologies, tapping, Process fundamentals, Process modelling, refining, casting, energy efficiency and recovery)

  • Si and FeSi (Production and operation, Raw materials, Pre-treatment technologies, tapping, Process fundamentals, Process modelling, refining, casting, energy efficiency and recovery)

  • Other alloys (Production and operation, Raw materials, Pre-treatment technologies, tapping, Process fundamentals, Process modelling, refining, casting, energy efficiency and recovery)

  • Reductants (Biocarbon, natural gas, traditional reductants, new reductants and alternatives to use of C)

  • Control systems, modelling and digitalisations (Big Data)

  • Furnaces, electrodes and refractories (Furnace design)

  • Recycling, New products and processes, Circularity

  • Health and Safety OHS

  • Market (Status and forecasts of the ferro-alloys markets, Sale of ore versus ferro-alloy production, Fines, tailings, and low-grade ores, Effects of electricity cost and availability, Export restrictions or subsidies)

Market and Reduced CO2 will in addition be topics for plenary sessions with invited presenters.
