Residuals in Steel
Organised by IOM Communications on behalf of the Iron and Steel Society of IOM3
Steel is the most widely recycled metal and the use of recycled steel is a key part of both basic oxygen and electric arc furnace steelmaking routes. However increased recycling can lead to increased levels of residual elements such as copper and tin in scrap steel. These elements are generally detrimental to steel properties and so either need to be removed or controlled in some way, but the removal mechanisms for these elements are often complex and expensive. The need to define and quantify the effects of these elements on steel properties, and to understand the tolerable limits of these elements for many steel applications and markets is of great importance to the modern steel industry.
This one -day seminar will examine these and other issues via a series of presentations and discussions.
Who should attend
Steel producers, processors and end users, R&D, academia.
