Carbon Neutrality & Energy Cost Reduction in Heat Treatment

How can the mechanical and metallurgical industries contribute with solutions and materials & process sciences

These aspects will be approached from different angles, and lectures will be given by experienced speakers from different sectors. The intention is to pay particular attention to the external factors that have impact. The heat treatment sector is a service sector and the evolution of customers from the different sectors largely determines the direction in which it should go in the short and long term.
