Due to the impact of COVID-19, the 12th European Electric Steelmaking Conference has been rescheduled until September 2021 to ensure the health and safety of all event attendees. Read the full statement here.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the industry for their understanding and support in these difficult and challenging times..

We look forward to welcoming you to Sheffield for a bigger and better event in 2021.

The key aim of this 12th European Electric Steelmaking Conference is to provide a forum at which steelmakers, product specialists, and all other parts of the steel sector supply chain (including the academic community and research and technology organisations) can come together to share information and exchange knowledge on current and future developments across the broad spectrum of electric arc furnace steelmaking and its associated technologies.

The conference will have 6 principal technology-based themes each of which is outlined below:

  • Process

  • Environment

  • Plant

  • Energy

  • Health and Safety in the Steel Industry

  • Industry 4.0

The conference will be followed by plant tours to one of the three special steel plants in the local area i.e. Sheffield Forgemasters, Liberty Speciality and Outokumpu Sheffield. These steelmakers produce a wide range of steel specifications from low carbon general machining steels to stainless and heat resisting alloy steels.

Who should attend:

The conference is a must for senior managers, plant operators and graduates involved in the production of steel by the Electric Arc Furnace and all those associated with the steel sector i.e. academics, researchers, steel users and suppliers of raw materials and equipment.
