At the conference, Dilip Chandrasekaran, Business Development Manager Steel at Kanthal at Kanthal, will do a speech on how electrification of heating processes will play a vital role in the industry’s quest of reaching carbon neutrality.

“Energy efficient heat processing will be crucial in meeting the challenges of a growing global population and combating climate change, often setting demands on higher operating temperatures and/or reduced cooling”, says Chandrasekaran. “While current heating technology is predominantly gas-fired, electric heating processes offer unique opportunities to reduce use of fossil fuels while increasing thermal efficiencies and potentially improving work environments”.

You can attend the presentation in Hall 10 Theatre on Tuesday 28th June 14:30-14:45.
