How Steel is Made
There are fourteen manufacturing committees, each dealing with a step in the steelmaking process, e.g., Coke Oven Practice, Hot Strip Mills and Ironmaking. The chairmanship is on a rotating basis among the members of the committees and is for a duration of two years. These committees meet 2-3 times in a year to discuss areas of common interest including: technical and operating issues, safety, environmental, and benchmarking. The members as well as suppliers and customers present new developments and technologies.
The meeting agendas are worked out in advance and are published as Work Plans. Similarly, the location and dates of the meeting are published as Meeting Calendar. Occasionally, joint meetings of committees as well as meetings with groups of European steel industry representatives are held.
