ISSF announces its annual award winners

The International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF) has announced the winners of its awards in the New Technology, New Development, Safety and Sustainability categories during a webinar, which replaced the traditional annual ceremony and in which the North American Stainless, Columbus Stainless and Acerinox Europa plants (all part of the Acerinox Group) were winners.

North American Stainless received first prize in the Sustainability category following the development of a project in which slag is reused as a construction material, transforming it into exterior tiles and paving stones. This material is even more resistant than Portland cement.

Also, Acerinox Europa won third prize in the Sustainability category for its implementation of the “LED Buildingsâ€? programme, through which an intelligent LED lighting system was installed, allowing energy savings both by reducing consumption and by adapting the lighting to usage needs.

In the New Technology category, the South African plant, Columbus Stainless, won first prize for a project aimed at developing modular constructions using 3Cr12 grade stainless steel.
