Sidenor has participated in the MAGFORUM conferences, organised by Informed in Bilbao on May 13-15th. With over 200 representatives from 30 countries, Magforum is a discussion forum on the development, process, logistics and market application of magnesium minerals as a basis for the manufacturing of refractories.
Our colleagues Aintzane Soto and David Maza from Sidenor R+D, as well as Oscar Olariaga and Jose Cruz Zirion from the Purchase department, have represented Sidenor in the conferences. Jose Cruz has presented the paper entitled “Can We Survive Without Magnesite?”, which analyses various alternatives for the use of refractories in the special steel production process.
Sidenor bets on circular economy and is currently developing various projects aiming at optimizing and reusing refractory materials – the company is a reference in the sector on this topic.
After the MAGFORUM conferences, a number of event organisers have visited the steel mill of Sidenor in Basauri, where they could see this process firsthand.
