Taiwan steel symposium is first of its kind


The International Molybdenum Association has joined forces with Taiwan National University, China Steel Corporation and niobium producer CBMM to organize the first steel symposium in Taiwan focusing on the synergies of combined molybdenum and niobium alloying.

The symposium, entitled Fundamentals and Applications of Mo and Nb Alloying in High Performance Steels, will be held at the Howard Plaza Hotel, Taipei from 7-8 November 2011.

The first day looks at the fundamental metallurgical effects of both elements while the second day focuses on dedicated applications. An elite group of lecturers from leading metallurgical institutions around the world have been invited to give presentations.

IMOA’s Technical Director, Nicole Kinsman, commented: “With this event we intend to revive the style and quality of the former Climax symposia, including the publishing of the proceedings.”

Professor Hardy Mohrbacher, an expert consultant for IMOA, added: “This is the first symposium of this kind in Taiwan. It is also the first time that Mo and Nb have cooperated in this form.

“This symposium is a back to basics discussion on what the elements Mo and Nb are doing and how their benefits can be exploited along the process chain into the end applications.”
