European Steel Technology Platform (ESTEP)


Thematic task force/working group in EU


Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials & new production technologies


An economy without steel products is hardly imaginable. Machinery in manufacturing and processing industry, petroleum refi neries, and chemical plants for producing basic materials or pharmaceuticals are constructed of steel. Planes, trains, ships, automobiles and many other things needed on a daily basis could not be manufactured unless there were structural parts and components made of steel. Today, the steel sector is under increasing pressure to address a number of challenges.
