Pioneers Talk #18: A Head-Start on Green Regulations

In this session of Pioneers Talk, host Tom Widter gets to play the role of an entrepreneur who wants to break into the steel business. But where should he take his new company—to the U.S.A., or to Europe? What’s the perfect region in terms of environmental regulations? Expert Thomas Steinparzer comes to the rescue and sheds some light on these topics.

Pioneers Talk is the new video format of Primetals Technologies, focusing on informative and empowering interviews with experts in metals production and beyond. Topics extend to new advances in digitalization and automation, breakthroughs in green-production solutions, and success strategies for steel producers on all continents.
