South Korea Seeks Immediate Talks on Steel Tariffs in US

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
23 Nov, 2021, 5:32 am

South Korean government has officially asked the United States to start talks on steel tariffs as recent developments on the matter between the United States and the European Union and Japan could hurt Korean steel companies' business interests. South Korea’s Trade Minister Mr Yeo Han-koo said “Because South Korea is a rival of the EU and Japan in the United States, I've strongly raised the necessity of negotiations with the United States on the matter. United States Trade Representative Ms Katherine Tai and I had an understanding that steel issues were highly important and sensitive to Korea. We agreed on the need to continue talks on the issue.”

He added "The US steel industry remains sensitive about the issue. But we as backed by robust demand for high quality Korean steel products in the US with the soaring investment of Korean manufacturing companies there.”

He reiterated that Korea cannot remain complacent over the timeline of renegotiations, given the US's speedy resumption of tariff talks with the EU and Japan, with which Korea is in a fierce competition on the global market. Mr Yeo said "For the time being, it's too early to judge; however, because the USTR and US Department of Commerce are involved on the matter simultaneously, we will try our best for an early start by maintaining minister-level communications."

United States and the EU recently reaching an agreement on Section 232 of national security tariffs the Trump administration placed on US imports of steel, and Washington announcing ongoing talks on tariffs with Japan and the United Kingdom. South Korea's exclusion from these negotiations was because of South Korea's earlier agreement with the Trump administration on a quota limiting its steel exports to the United States to 70 percent of the average volume between 2015 and 2017. Such a ceiling allowed Korea-manufactured steel exports to avoid the 25 percent tariff a lot of other steel exporters faced from the Section 232 process.

Vale Bags Award for Innovative Use of Wind Propulsion in Shipping

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
23 Nov, 2021, 5:30 am

Vale's project to create the world's first large ore carrier equipped with rotor sails won the Wind Propulsion Innovation Awards, presented by the International Windship Association in Glasgow, Scotland, at a side event during the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference. The organization, which encourages the global use of wind propulsion in commercial shipping, awarded Vale the prize in the category for companies that encourage the adoption of this type of technology through prototypes or commercial use - since May, the company's fleet of ships has a Guaibamax equipped with the rotor sails.

In total, 84 nominations were submitted to a panel made up of members of the industry, academia, supporters of wind propulsion technology and people linked to energy and sustainability areas. Vale was the winner in one of the four categories opened to the public vote. According to the organizers, pioneering projects, innovative technologies, people and companies that are making a difference in advancing wind propulsion as an efficient, low-carbon and sustainable option for the commercial shipping fleet were recognized.

The rotating sails are cylindrical rotors, four meters in diameter and 24 meters high - equivalent to a seven-story building. During operation, the five rotors rotate at different speeds, depending on the environmental and operational conditions of the ship, to create a difference in pressure in order to move the ship forward, based on a phenomenon known as the Magnus effect. Still in the testing phase, rotor sails can offer an efficiency gain of up to 8% and a consequent reduction of up to 3,400 tons of CO2 equivalent per ship per year. If the pilot proves to be efficient, it is estimated that at least 40% of the fleet will be able to use the technology, which would impact on almost 1.5% annual emissions reduction by Vale's iron ore shipping.

Productie duurzaam staal haalbaar voor Tata, steun overheid nodig
Van onze redacteur 10:38

FNV Metaal heeft de kosten voor de transformatie van Tata Steel eerder geschat op €1,4 mrd, geld dat deels uit subsidies voor CO2-reductie kan komen. Foto: Yves Herman/Reuters

De ambitie van Tata Steel om in 2030 met behulp van waterstof staal te produceren en zo de uitstoot van CO2 te verminderen, is haalbaar. Medewerking van lokale en nationale overheden is daarbij echter onontbeerlijk. Dat is de uitkomst van een onderzoek dat consultant Roland Berger uitvoerde in opdracht van de staalfabrikant en FNV Metaal.

Uit het onderzoek komt naar voren dat het overschakelen op zogenoemd direct-gereduceerd ijzer (DRI) waarvoor waterstof nodig is, al voor 2030 mogelijk is. Dat ijzer wordt vervolgens verwerkt in een elektrische oven. Daarbij wordt uitgegaan van een tussenfase met 'grijze waterstof' op aardgas.

Ambitieuze tijdlijnen
Als het aan directievoorzitter Hans van den Berg van Tata Steel Nederland ligt, gaat de staalmaker nog eerder dan het rapport van Berger aangeeft over op waterstof. 'We zien ambitieuze tijdlijnen die zijn neergezet. Als we die halen, heeft het onze voorkeur om meteen waterstof in te zetten. We doen nu al veel voorbereidend werk.'

Om de transitie naar duurzaam staal te realiseren, moet Tata volgens het rapport zo snel mogelijk aan de slag. Daarbij is de overheid aan zet als het gaat om het snel doorlopen van de benodigde vergunningstrajecten, het inrichten van de infrastructuur voor waterstof en het ontwikkelen van de benodigde wet- en regelgeving.

Financiële steun
Daarnaast zal de overheid ook financiële steun moeten geven om de transitie van Tata naar een groen staalbedrijf mogelijk te maken. Daarvoor zijn volgens het rapport namelijk miljarden aan investeringen nodig. FNV Metaal schatte de kosten voor de transformatie eerder op €1,4 mrd, geld dat deels uit subsidies voor CO2-reductie zou kunnen worden gehaald.

In andere landen dragen overheden al bij aan de transitie naar DRI. Het rapport noemt als voorbeelden onder meer ArcelorMittal, dat een intentieverklaring tekende met de Belgische en Vlaamse regeringen voor een investering van €1,1 mrd om DRI-technologie mogelijk te maken in de staalfabriek in Gent. Met de Spaanse overheid tekende het bedrijf een soortgelijke verklaring.

Duitsland trok recentelijk €5 mrd uit voor de periode 2022-2024 om de uitstoot van de staalindustrie terug te dringen. Om niet achter te blijven in Europa, zou volgens het rapport ook 'maatwerk nodig zijn vanuit de Nederlandse overheid om de transitie mogelijk te maken'.

Gevolgen voor medewerkers
Wat de FNV betreft moeten bij de transitie ook de belangen van medewerkers in de gaten worden gehouden. De vakbond spreekt over een zogenoemd Sociaal Contract Groen Staal. 'Samen met de directie willen we dit contract opstellen, waarmee we de belangen van de medewerkers tijdens en na deze transitie borgen', aldus bestuurder Cihan Lacin. 'Want deze grote verandering van het productieproces heeft directe gevolgen voor het werk van de werknemers van Tata Steel.'

Steel Warrior Peter Marcus Relinquishes His Iron Sword

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
24 Nov, 2021, 2:14 am

Founder of World Steel Dynamics Peter F Marcus has passed away. The steel industry was Peter’s passion, inspiration and never-ending endeavour. His unique style and personality were only matched by his prophetic vision for the industry’s ever-changing landscape. He played the field general of the “Economic Warfare” that symbolized the constant ups and downs of the steel price cycle, and he was always several steps ahead of the battle’s evolution. “Kill and Win” was his motto as he charged into his next report, prognosticating “Death Spirals,” “Volcanic Eruptions” and “Extreme Short-Ages.”

Equal to his passion for the industry was Peter’s love for its people. From senior executives to line workers, Peter genuinely wished success and prosperity for everyone he encountered in his travels around the world over the last 50+ years. He believed the steel industry was the fundamental building block for economic prosperity – the “engine” of the virtuous upward cycle that would ultimately benefit one and all; his words and actions embodied this belief. No doubt many of you have experienced this phenomenon first-hand.

Peter leaves behind several “families” – his personal family, his WSD family, and our “family” of clients and industry friends – all of which he loved immensely. Fortunately, with some advanced planning, WSD’s generals are well prepared to take over and charge the battlefield. Peter’s last report was ironically titled “Steel’s Last Hurrah” proclaiming yet another prolific “ShortAge” for steel prices on the horizon in early-2022.
