The presentation can be seen either live streamed for free by registering here.
The UNSW SMaRT Centre has a long history of research in electric arc furnace steel making using waste rubber tyres as an alternative for coke and coke in steel making and new SMaRT Green SteelTM research is now working on a range of other wastes usually destined for landfill, including the bio-waste of coffee grounds and various problematic plastics, for use in steel making to contribute hydrogen to further enhance the steel production process and continue to reduce the need of coke and coal.
Veena's keynote follows one by Bill Gates and takes place on day 2 of the three day conference.
