Cronimet Holding GmbH

CRONIMET has been supplying raw materials for the stainless steel producing industry for four decades. As a family business, it has grown into a global player in this important supply sector. As the resource protection is becoming increasingly important, the Group is striving to further develop in these future markets.

CRONIMET is a global specialist for stainless steel scrap, ferro alloys and primary metals. Today the company is established on six continents at more than 70 locations on the worldwide procurement markets for secondary raw materials.

Four pillars support the company: Recycling, Trade & Sales, Production and Services. A comprehensive range of products and services is based on this solid foundation. It ranges from processed stainless steel and metal scrap to special and superalloys. Whether pure or precisely recombined, CRONIMET guarantees its customers exact analyses of all raw materials. If required, all components are provided in a chargeable form for the melting process.

In addition to Cronimet's focus on solid scrap, the subsidiary Cronimet Envirotec is treating metal-containing soft scrap from industries such as the automotive sector, steel mills, foundries, and others. With an innovative vacuum distillation technology, an environmentally friendly separation of materials without their chemical modification is achieved. With that, wholesome recycling of hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams can be guaranteed. Grinding sludges, oily mill scale, and other wet metal-bearing materials are dried and de-oiled at Envirotec's premises in Bitterfeld, Germany. The metal residues obtained in this way can be returned to smelter in the form of metal briquettes, as can filter dust and other metallic powders. Briquetting with the use of an organic binder enables the company to produce an output raw material that can be used as a substitute for solid scrap.

S1Seven develops and operates a software platform for digitizing today's largely manual processes related to mandatory material test certificates such as for steel, aluminum, copper and plastic. Millions of these are still exchanged on paper or PDF documents between material manufacturers and the processing industry and processed manually today.

S1Seven replaces these documents with machine-readable data. The document properties required by the regulator (unchangeability of the content, authenticity of the creator) can be provided for the first time using cryptographic processes using blockchain technology. The data is exchanged directly between the participants via the platform and replaces complex and technically outdated EDI (electronic data interchange) connections. Existing software systems such as SAP can be connected to the platform via fully certified connectors in the shortest possible time and with a minimum of effort.

  • What is hot …. and what is not hot in 2022 and 2023?
  • What damage is inflation doing to the European stainless market?
  • Impact of war in Ukraine for stainless steel, raw materials and energy
  • How can a global level playfield be assured?
  • What is the status of the Border Adjustment Mechanism to regulate global CO2 costs?
  • How can we keep the stainless steel supply chains competitive?
  • Re-shoring: can South-East Europe become the workbench of Europe?
  • Is protectionism the only weapon to keep stainless steels markets in the Western World?
  • How can digitalization help to keep our industry competitive?
  • ‘Glocalization’ of so far global supply chains – where does it make sense and where not?
  • Is the container shortage here to stay?
  • How can the Western World secure competitive raw material sources?

  • Is the alloy surcharge a friend or foe of the stainless steel industry in Europe and North America?

Technology 2022 - Tools for a Green and Competitive Special Steel Industry

  • Currently the main focus is on controlling energy costs. Green energy is expensive. Will the GHG reduction targets be taken off the table for some time?
    The steel sustainability challenge – how to reduce our CO2 footprint?
  • Are the CO2 calculation methods harmonized globally (Scope 1, Scope 2, Scope 3)?
  • New digital technologies to track the ESG (environmental social governance) throughout the steel supply chain.
  • Blockchain technology for data and certificate safety in the entire supply chain.
  • Are sufficient hard- and software tools available to digitalize STS production and distribution?
  • Where does digitalization have the main impact in the entire STS supply chain?

The New Energy Reality in the Stainless Steel Industry

  • Europe has the by far highest industrial energy prices globally. Is there a chance that we become energy competitive again – or will the industry leave Europe?
  • Gas and Electricity are key ingredients for STS Mills. What is ahead for this Winter in Europe?
  • Can an EAF based steel mill reduce its gas consumption / ton?
  • What can Brussels do to help our industry?
  • How will the energy surcharges develop?
  • Are the current gas prices really a result of ‘supply and demand’ or are there other factors in Europe?
  • Can gas and electricity prices be de-coupled quickly?
  • Why does ‘sustainable fracking’ without chemicals (developed in Leoben/Austria) not get a chance in Europe?
  • Wind and solar: What is the bottleneck in Europe: Production units or the grid?

Prices are not available for past events.
