The future of European steel
Innovation and sustainability in a competitive world and EU circular economy - Study
Steel is central to modern economies and is associated to growth and progress. As second world largest steel producer, the EU is challenged by global competition and environmental constraints. Grounded on the results of a large seminar entitled 'The future of European steel: innovation and sustainability in a competitive world and EU circular economy', this publication aims at demonstrating that beyond trade defence instruments, Europe has to push for incremental innovations and technological breakthroughs in a sustainable development context. The future of European steel relies on energy... savings, energy efficiency and reduction of CO2 emissions associated to new high quality applications in the construction, energy and mobility sectors.
