Inaugural Robert D. Pehlke Lectureship in Materials Processing: “Emerging Technologies and Process Innovations in the Steel Industry”

Ronald H. Radzilowski, Ph.D., FASM
Principal Research Engineer, AK Steel Corporation

This is an exciting time for innovations in the materials manufacturing industry to meet and even exceed the demands of customers in the transportation, construction, and energy sectors.  With increasing mandates to reduce greenhouse emissions and reduce its carbon footprint, steel producers are upgrading current process technologies and funding research to create, develop and commercialize new steel making processes using the state-of –the-art computer ware and novel processes.  A number of potentially breakthrough technologies and processes related to steel making and finishing will be presented here to give a glimpse at what is in store for the highly competitive world of materials.
