The future is bright – drivers for Stainless Steel growth

Stainless & Special Steel Conference is heading to Rome, Italy, in 2024!

After successful events in Hamburg (Germany) and Zurich (Switzerland) with more than 300 participants from the entire stainless steel supply chain, we will gather in Rome (Italy), in 2024. We will meet from Sept. 17 - 19, 2024 in order to discuss the current state of the global stainless & special steel industry and all relevant issues that will shape the business in 2025 and beyond.

Sustainability, green stainless steel, and digitalization have been prominent themes at the past three stainless steel conferences in Como, Hamburg, and Zurich. While these topics remain significant, the upcoming conference in Rome will shift the focus to innovative stainless steel applications, which are expected to be major drivers of future demand for stainless and special steels. Join us to discuss about future growth trends!

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.

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.
