EUROFER Seeks Registration of HDG Imports from Turkey & Russia

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
01 Dec, 2021, 5:40 am

The European Steel Association EUROFER has requested that the European Commission should register the imports of hot dip galvanized coil from Turkey and Russia. The request is part of the antidumping duty investigation against certain HDG imports from the given countries initiated in June this year, covering the period between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020. Should the European Commission agree to Eurofer's request, registration means duties can be retroactively applied to imports of hot-dip galvanised material from the countries.

EUROFER said "If imports are allowed to continue to surge, without the possibility of retroactive measures, significant inventories are likely to build up from now until the imposition of provisional measures. These inventories, which could then be sold by the importers free of AD duties, would seriously undermine the duty's remedial effect. Exporters from the countries were trying to front-load volumes into the EU ahead of the potential imposition of measures.”

According to the EUROFER data, in 2020 Russia exported 311,882 tonnes of HGD to the EU countries, while the EU imported 916,558 tonnes of the given products from Turkey. In the first nine months this year, the EU countries imported 288,723 tonnes of HDG from Russia and 1,000,017 tonnes of HDG from Turkey.

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
01 Dec, 2021, 5:45 am

An explosion rocked Cleveland-Cliffs Burns Harbor steel mill in northwest Indiana in US producing a plume of reddish brown smoke visible miles away, though no one was injured. Cleveland-Cliffs spokeswoman Ms Patricia Persico said that the blast took place in a slag pit at the mill along the Lake Michigan lakeshore in Porter County. She said “There was an incident with the site’s slag pit. The fire has been extinguished. There are no injuries.”

Steel slag is a molten liquid by product of the steelmaking process and it is dumped into pits where it solidifies as it cools. The explosion was caused after silica waste combined with moisture in a slag pit and caused a chemical reaction.

The Burns Harbor mill is Cleveland-Cliffs second-largest US facility. The fully-integrated mill operates two blast furnaces that can produce nearly 5 million net tons of raw steel. It primarily produces hot-rolled, cold-rolled and hot-dip galvanized steel products.

Recently, the United States and the European Union announced an agreement to replace the existing 25 percent tariff on EU steel products with a Tariff Rate Quota, which will go into effect on January 1, 2022. Under the Tariff Rate Quota arrangement, historically based volumes of EU steel will enter the US without application of Section 232 duties subject to certain conditions. US Department of Commerce announced last week that the aggregate annual import volume under the Tariff Rate Quota is set at 3.3 million tonnes under 54 product categories and allocated on an EU member state basis, in line with the 2015-2017 historical periods

Germany - 907,893 tonnes

Netherlands - 507,598 tonnes

Italy - 360,477 tonnes

Sweden – 129,363 tonnes

Belgium – About 90,000 tonnes

Austria – About 11,000 tonnes

Czech Republic – About 60,000 tonnes

Rest is divided among France and other producers.

Tariff Rate Quota will be calculated for each year of the measure and administered on a quarterly basis. These will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis for various product categories. Any unused Tariff Rate Quota volume from the first quarter of the year, up to 4% of the allocated quota for that quarter, will roll over to the third quarter. Any unused Tariff Rate Quota volume from the second quarter of the year, subject to the same limit, will roll over into the fourth quarter, and any unused Tariff Rate Quota volume from Q3, subject to the same limit, will roll over into Q1 of the following year.

US imported around 2.50 million tonnes of steel from the EU last year, 4.00 million tonnes in 2019 and 5.00 million tonnes in 2018.

Chinese Researchers Develop Anti COVID19 Stainless Steel

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
02 Dec, 2021, 4:58 am

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 exhibits strong stability on conventional stainless steel surface, with infectious virus detected even after two days, posing a high risk of virus transmission via surface touching in public areas. In order to mitigate the surface toughing transmission, Chinese researchers have developd the first SS with excellent anti-pathogen properties against SARS-COV-2. The stabilities of SARS-CoV-2, H1N1 influenza A virus and Escherichia coli on the surfaces of Cu-contained SS, pure Cu, Ag-contained SS, and pure Ag were investigated. It is discovered that pure Ag and Ag-contained SS surfaces do not display apparent inhibitory effects on SARS-CoV-2 and H1N1. In comparison, both pure Cu and Cu-contained SS with a high Cu content exhibit significant antiviral properties. Significantly, the developed anti-pathogen SS with 20 wt.% Cu can distinctly reduce 99.75% and 99.99% of viable SARS-CoV-2 on its surface within 3 and 6 hours, respectively. In addition, the present anti-pathogen SS also exhibits an excellent inactivation ability for H1N1 influenza A virus and Escherichia coli. Interestingly, the Cu ion concentration released from the anti-pathogen SS with 10 wt% and 20 wt% Cu was notably higher than the Ag ion concentration released from Ag and the Ag-contained SS. Lift buttons made of the present anti-pathogen SS are produced using mature powder metallurgy technique, demonstrating its potential applications in public areas and fighting the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and other pathogens via surface touching.

The transmission of pathogenic bacteria and viruses in public areas has been a long-standing issue for public health. Infectious diseases induced by these bacteria or viruses are not only afflicting millions of people annually but also causing an immeasurable economic cost. In particular, the current coronavirus disease 2019 is causing a global pandemic.

As the two most popular inorganic antimicrobial elements, Ag and Cu have attracted significant research interests because of their low toxicity to animal cells and well-known ability to inactivate a broad spectrum of bacteria and viruses. Studies have reported that Ag nanoparticles, some Ag-contained composites, copper, brass, and Cu-contained high-entropy alloy have antimicrobial properties. In particular, it has been reported that pure Cu exhibits an excellent antiviral efficiency towards SARS-CoV-2 and H1N1 influenza A virus. However, replacing SS products with pure Cu in public areas is impractical due to its high cost, low strength, and less corrosion-resistant capability. Some studies have introduced antimicrobial properties into conventional SS by surface coating or ion implantation. Nevertheless, it is necessary to note that the thickness of coatings is limited (e.g., physical vapor deposition, cold-spray, and ion implantation, thickness < 1 mm). The damage of coatings on the surface can significantly affect the antimicrobial properties of SS, resulting in a limited service duration. Therefore, low-cost SS with long-term antimicrobial properties is required for replacing conventional SS products used in public areas.

Severstal will Reduce Emissions at CherMK by 20% by 2026

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
02 Dec, 2021, 5:19 am

Russian steel maker Severstal has set an additional target to reduce air pollutant emissions for the Cherepovets Steel Works. Severstal has set itself a more ambitious goal of reducing specific emissions of dust, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides into the air separately for CherMK. Specific emissions should decrease in 2026 to 4.28 kg / t of steel from 5.39 kg / t of steel in 2017, or by 20%. Achieving this goal will allow the phased implementation of measures to reduce emissions into the atmosphere of the targeted environmental program, developed taking into account the strategy of technological development of the enterprise, including new production facilities of blast furnace No. 3 and coke oven battery No. 11.

Severstal also reports interim results to achieve the goal of rational water use. Thus, the company set a goal to reduce the discharge of problematic pollutants by 12% by 2026 relative to the 2017 indicator. Intermediate results in reducing the total discharge of pollutants amounted to 16.6%. This year, Severstal completed the CDP Water Security for the first time and released a report on water protection activities. It should be noted that CherMK has the best indicator in the industry in terms of the closedness of the recycling water supply system at 98.4% of all water required to support production.

In the area of environmental protection, Severstal has set a goal to reduce the amount of waste disposed of by 20% by 2026 compared to 2017. The interim target was fulfilled by 62.4%. Annually, CherMK generates about seven million tons of various wastes, of which 96.6% are recycled or sold (based on the results of 9 months of 2021).

Severstal intends to reduce specific emissions in order to strengthen the goals within the framework of the federal project "Clean Air". The company has already more than half achieved its goals under the federal Clean Air project.

Cherepovets Steel Works facilities include Coke batteries, Sintering machines, Blast Furnaces, steel making furnaces, rolling units and downstream units. Production capacity of Cherepovets Iron & Steel Mill is around 11.6 million tonnes of steel annually. Cherepovets Steel Mill produces a wide assortment of flat and long-rolled products, including hot and cold-rolled flat products, galvanised and colour coated products and long-steel applications.
