Unified International Technical Conference on Refractories (UNITECR)
“The Carbon Challenge: Steps and leaps to master the future” is the motto for UNITECR in Frankfurt. The way to carbon neutrality for the high temperature industries will keep engineers busy for many years to come.
The transformation from carbon to green hydrogen-based steel making and the replacement of fossil fuels in high temperature processes will have an impact on the refractory materials. New technologies will require new lining concepts.
Modified and new refractory lining concepts will also help to save energy and lower the carbon emissions for existing technolohies and processes.
Modern tools such as big data analysis, machine learning, and the development of suitable models will help us to increase the speed of innovation in the industry.
