Decarbonising structural steelwork

Thursday 15th September 2022

Theatre :  Sustainability and Circular Economy 


Steel is the backbone of modern economies and underpins many industrial sectors, including construction which accounts for more than half of all steel use globally. Steel also has a vital role to play to facilitate the transition to a zero-carbon economy and the industrial and infrastructure revolution that is required to decarbonise the UK by 2050.

Decarbonising structural steelwork requires co-ordinated effort by all parts of the supply through a range of supply and demand-side measures.

This panel will discuss what the supply is doing to decarbonise and the challenges and the opportunities the sector faces.

It will include steel production, design and fabrication efficiencies and circular economy aspects including reusing structural steelwork.
