Driving the move to sustainable, low-emissions steel
Andrew Purvis, Director of Safety, Environment and Technology at worldsteel.
Andrew Purvis, Director of Safety, Environment and Technology at worldsteel talks with Alex about the work that is underway in the steel sector to start to make the shift to real, sustainable low emissions steel. Topics up for discussion include the types of next gen tech being tested in the sector, the potential for scrap and circularity – but also the real need to see government procurement and major buyers showing there is a market for low carbon/low emissions steel. With 1.8b tonnes of steel produced in 2019, and a high potential for the sector to produce products that would drive the transition to decarbonisation – there’s both massive potential for the sector while also the need to tackle their major co2 bill. Find out how the sector is moving forward and where some of the blocks and opportunities lie.
Andrew will be speaking on Day 2 of Decarb Connect Digital Festival.
