Project Seminar: RFCS LowCarbonFuture
On the 1st of April, in Brescia (Italy) LowCarbonFuture seminar was held.
The seminar has been organized in the frame of the Advanced training course “EUROSTEELMASTER”, organized by Rina CSM. The Eurosteelmaster is aimed at managers, researchers, students, trade unionists and other professionals operating in the entire value chain of the steel sector. Attendee possess a university degree or equivalent experience.
The course is organized by RINA with the support of European Commission, EUROFER, Federacciai, ESTEP, the European Steel Technology Platform. Cooperation with EU and worldwide interested parties, on the basis of enrollment of participants from the main steel and related companies, is highly welcomed.
The seminar program was the following:
- Welcome and Introduction, Pietro Gimondo (RINA)
- General presentation of the LowCarbonFuture project (partners, structure, main objectives), Gerald Stubbe (BFI)
- Presentation of pathway Carbon Direct Avoidance – CDA, K1-MET
- Presentation of pathway Process Integration – PI, CRM
- Presentation of pathway Carbon Capture and Usage – CCU, BFI/CSM
- Presentation – Methodology of project data collection and assessment via the project database, SWERIM
- Questionnaire “Stakeholder survey” and open discussion on main technologies and barriers concerning CO2 mitigation in the Steel Industry, Filippo Cirilli (RINA)
About 35 attendees from steel industry and scientific institutions joined the seminar and contributed to make the event informative and inspiring.
In the afternoon, after a brief summary of main technologies available and applied (at laboratory, pilot, demo and industrial scale), seminar attendees, from different backgrounds and viewpoints, animated an interesting debate.
The discussion mainly dealt with the available technologies, possible solutions on short/medium period and on long period. Topic of discussion was the economic feasibility of new technologies. In fact, new technologies would require significant investments and consequently an increased production cost.
As conclusion of the seminar, the questionnaire has been distributed among the attendees.
The answers of the questionnaire will constitute the basis to carry out the Task 4.5: “Industrial stakeholder surveys”.
First results from questionnaire analysis will be available for middle June.
