Sustainable stainless conference

145 delegates attended the “Stainless Solutions for a Sustainable Future” Conference, organised by the British Stainless Steel Association on 3-4 April. Kari Saarinen, Executive Vice-President, Group Marketing and Technology, AvestaPolarit, in his welcoming address at the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham, highlighted how stainless steel has met the UK government’s objectives for sustainable development. He said that the life cycle cost benefits would continue to encourage the increasing use of stainless steel. “However, the growth will also depend on close co-operation of the players in the industry. The international development bodies such as the International Steel Forum and Euro Inox, together with the national bodies such as the BSSA have a vital part to play. ” Barrie Cheetham, Chairman of the BSSA commented: “Today we focussed on sustainable development. Often this is taken to mean we should give up some of our comforts for the sake of future benefits. What we need is an industry which delivers long-term benefits without unreasonable costs. The stainless steel industry offers just that.”
