Many thanks to ArcelorMITTAL for organising and hosting a training event for the CESAREF consortium in Mets, France. The event took place from the 23rd-25th May 2023 and covered aspects of from the RTC3 : Life Cycle Assessment and Sustainability as well as RTC4 : Corrossion training courses. The courses included:
- CO2 Footprint of process (SIMIS),
- Continuous casting,
- LCA of steel,
- Hydrogen Corrosion,
- Basics on thermodynamic calculations,
- CEQCSI : thermodynamic case studies, and,
- Steel corrosion.
ArcelorMittal were also kind enough to organise a visit of their pilot caster facility.
On top of this, a course on creative thinking was given which led to a variety of potentially patentable products being conceived and some heated debates on how best to break up chocolate. The participants were certainly left with a different point of view of problem solving than when they started!
A music quiz and a guided tour of Metz were also organised during the evenings.
For a taster of what it is like in ArcelorMITTAL have a look at this video.
