PLATIS - a project for fossil-free heating in the steel industry

A new process will be developed and tested with the aim to replace fossil fuels in steel industry´s furnaces. The Swedish Steel Association, Jernkontoret, owns the project and it´s led by Triple Steelix. The project will investigate, test and evaluate plasma as a possible technology to make the processes fossil-free. The Swedish Energy Agency believes that PLATIS could contribute to technological advancement for heating processes outside the steel industry as well.

Due to the Corona Pandemic we have decided to cancel the conference. We will instead invite you all to two online webinars that address the same themes as was planned for HTSC 2020, Sustainable steels for the future.
We are sorry that we won´t be able to meet IRL in Sweden this autumn but also pleased that we can make a change and use the ZOOM tool to meet online, listen to interesting research results and innovative enterprises. We have preliminary dates for the two first webinars, September 30th and October 29 th.
The webinars will last for 90 minutes each and contain presentations and group discussions. With successful outcome of these webinars we may also offer the opportunity for an extended program of zoom meetings over the coming year.
We are also joining forces with the 5th ESTAD, European Steel Technology and Application Days in Stockholm, in June next year and would be happy to invite you to this event. See more on
Let´s meet online during autumn and then enjoy physical meetings at ESTAD June 2021 in Stockholm.

More specific information and invitation to online webinars will be presented.

Now we have completed the 2019 Young Global Center of Excellence in Advanced Steels.
We received the evaluation from the doctoral students, which is excellent.
This year, new steel industries have participated that have not been part of the program before. We have also expanded the geography to Värmland with Karlstad University and Uddeholm AB, as well as new participating universities, the University of Birmingham and the Technical University of Delft. This means that we are expanding the network of participating partners both within and outside Sweden's borders. Read more

SSAB’s line of hot- and cold-rolled Docol® automotive steel has received its Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification, the company reports.
The National Standard Body of India created the BIS certification in 2016 to support local industries in the Indian economy. As part of this move, many advanced high-strength steel grades, including Docol steel products, were subject to new regulations.

PIMAP Project - New Events! Business Missions to Canada/USA with great progress!
One of the EU's designated areas for enabling technologies is photonics. It is based on the use of light of various forms, e.g. radio waves, UV, IR or visible light, radar, x-ray, etc. and can be used in many different contexts, e.g. for instrumentation and sensor technology for production control, non-destructive testing, material technology, marking, monitoring, vision systems, measuring and analysis instruments, tool and machine manufacturing, digitization - industry 4.0, automation, additive manufacturing, optical components and systems, etc. Read more!
