AGVU members visit thin sheet production in Andernach

On 16 June 2023 thyssenkrupp Rasselstein invited AGVU members to a workshop titled “Steel packaging and its recycling” in Andernach. The workshop was organised as part of the workshop series Know-How Exchange on Recycling Processes and included a very impressive tour of the production plant for tinned or special chromium-plated thin sheets. The strips and sheets produced in this plant are used, among other things, in tinplate packaging for food, beverages, aerosols and for chemical-technical filling goods. In the second part, the future of steel production with the use of hydrogen was discussed.

We would like to thank the host thyssenkrupp Rasselstein. The presentation slides “Transformation of steel production – Our contribution to climate neutrality” can be found here.
