Leuven was the place for Harare’s 18M meeting

A lot of results was presented by an enthusiastic consortium at KU Leuven last week. We are adding one little result at a time to the knowledge base that will make the metal-industry sustainable.

Recap of what Harare is all about: “The metallurgical industry in the EU accounts for 70 million tonnes direct CO2 emissions annually (2017). Mitigating the CO2 footprint from the production is essential to ensure further licence to operate in Europe. Moreover, the industry is highly dependent on imports. Less than 15% of metal input to the European process industry is supplied from domestic extraction. Additionally, only 31% of the coking coal is sourced in Europe. The latter has been identified as a critical raw material. The HARARE project addresses these two issues.”
