In recent years, metals producers are actively working towards decarbonizing the industry. This has led to breakthroughs in the use of hydrogen, renewable energy and digital transformation in producing green steel.This brings about numerous questions like, how can green steel and aluminum produced in the US be protected against imported ones with high CO2 footprint? How can producers leverage renewable energy for cheaper and optimized production? Furthermore, how can aluminum producers achieve the net zero target? These are some of the issues discussed at AISTECH in the US and Future Aluminum Forum, Canada in May 2023.
