“The steel market has been very busy this year (price volatility, carbon control, changes in export supplies, steeping competition etc.) making steel companies rearrange business and industrial processes, adapt to new conditions, find new niches for investments and develop new sales markets. Russian steel companies openly face the challenges confirming their statuses as the most efficient in the global steel industry. It is very important under the current conditions that Metal-Expo’2021 offers all the steel market players a good opportunity to get together and discuss the most pressing problems of the global steel industry. The hard-driving program of the exhibition offers its participants the most pressing topics for discussion and an opportunity to exchange the best practices of implementation of innovative projects, as well as development and promotion of new types of steel products. In my belief, the initiatives and concept approaches suggested during the event will stimulate further growth of the steel and steel-related industries”, states D. Manturov, The Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation in his welcome address to Metal-Expo’2021 exhibitors and visitors.
Favorable world market structure helps increase investments in developing and implementing new low-carbon technologies. Many steel companies have announced ambitious investment projects in 2021. Thus, NLMK group builds an HBI complex at Stoylensk Mining and Dressing Plant, while Metalloinvest constructs one of the biggest and the most modern HBI plants in the world. HBI is in high demand now in Russia and globally for due to it СО2 emissions are reduced twice as compared to traditional methods. Vyksa commissions Ekolant steel complex to operate using iron direct reduction method on iron ore pellets and natural gas. A new rails and beams mill by Novostal-M will be commissioned in Balakovo, Zagorsk Pipe Plant is setting up production of seamless pipes near Moscow, TMK is launching production of stainless rolled flats near Vologda while MMK builds a new blast furnace #11. Implementations of the projects to be presented at Metal-Expo’2021 ensure further development of the regions and the whole Russian economy creating thousands of new jobs. Thus, the exhibition will show a mighty potential of the Russian steel industry and its new projects.
