Ironmaking Course


Course Overview

The Ironmaking course provides an in-depth overview of the blast furnace process and raw materials considerations. The presentations are a combination of theoretical, practical and operational aspects. A key part is the group work using a process options model to investigate the effects of process and material changes on cost.

Who Should Attend?

The course is aimed at people working in the iron & steel industry, as well as the iron & steel supply chain, who will benefit from a broad understanding of the ironmaking process. Typical delegates include senior production operators, engineers, manufacturing and operations managers, metallurgists, technical and quality control personnel.

Learning Outcomes

  • The course will provide delegates with an in depth knowledge of the blast furnace process, an overview of the upstream processes, and understanding of ironworks costs and constraints
