Click on links below to view the Oxygen in Steelmaking Technical Program!
Chairmen: G. Irons and S. Sun
Oxygen steelmaking will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary in North America in 2004. This anniversary provides
an opportune time to examine developments and future prospects of this technology. Developments in electric arc
furnace technology, where the use of oxygen has increased dramatically in the last decade, are also of great
importance to the steel industry and will be a major focus of this symposium. Invited international keynote and
contributed papers will focus on recent developments in the use of oxygen in both converter and EAF steelmaking.
Major themes: lance/injector technology; post combustion and slag foaming; hybrid steelmaking; advanced operating
and control systems; steelmaking fundamentals; process modeling; and development of oxygen steelmaking.
The conference will also take the opportunity to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Oxygen Steelmaking in
North America and honor these pioneers.
