Use of Bioresources in the Metals Industry

Jernkontoret and Metallinjalostajat invite to a two-day seminar about non-fossil carbon usage in the metals industry. 


28-29 September 2022


  • At Jernkontoret in Stockholm, Sweden.


The seminar aims at showing the status of the use of non-fossil carbon, i.e., mainly processed forest residues, in steel plants in Finland and Sweden. Ongoing research programs and projects in the Nordic countries will be reviewed as well as the global development regarding use of forest residues and biomass in steel making.

At a workshop during day 2 of the seminar, further work in the field will be discussed and ideas for a joint Swedish-Finnish research project will be considered.

The seminar will cover issues regarding:

  • Targets regarding minimizing the use of fossil carbon in the metals industry.
  • Availability of bioresources in the Nordic countries
  • International views on the use of biocarbon and forest residues for steel making
  • Actions taken in other forest rich countries
  • Processing of forest residues into raw materials
  • Practical use of biocarbon in metals processing
