The inaugural Green Steel World Expo & Conference took place on April 4 and 5, 2023, with the Hydrogen Tech World Expo and Conference, in Essen, Germany.

The event’s huge success demonstrates that the industry is dedicated to solving the issues that lie ahead while actively seeking new and inventive solutions that will allow us to produce steel more sustainably and responsibly. It was an unrivalled chance to meet with professionals and learn about the newest technology, projects, success stories, and the industry’s issues, bottlenecks, and impediments. We worked diligently to put this event together and seeing that our efforts over the previous year had paid off was encouraging.

The need for change has never been as evident, nor as widely supported, as it is today. Around the world, governments, corporations, and industrial sectors are looking to facilitate decarbonisation, ramp up renewable fuel sources and embrace recycling.

Thanks to the widespread support of our communities, the inaugural Green Steel World and Hydrogen Tech World Expos & Conferences delivered an extra boost in this direction. There were plenty of opportunities for visitors to absorb knowledge – and perhaps more importantly to actively share their own expertise – by participating in the conference presentations, engaging with suppliers in the expo or simply connecting with other visitors during the coffee breaks.

We trust that the two days were both informative and inspiring to all participants.

And finally, shows like Green Steel World and Hydrogen Tech World are only possible with the support of many corporations, associations, and individuals.
Our heartfelt thanks to our sponsors: Fero Labs, Outokumpu, Ovako, thyssenkrupp, and Vulcan Green Steel. To the many speakers who delivered the latest insights into green steels and hydrogen.

A special mention to ResponsibleSteel for supporting the Green Steel World Conference.

To the exhibiting companies who eagerly received the visitors at their stands.

Lastly, thanks to all the ‘behind-the-scenes’ colleagues, partners and friends for their hard work and words of wisdom.

We were delighted to have you with us!
