The Poveromo International Symposium on Sustainable Iron and Steel Making is dedicated to honoring the lifetime achievements of Dr. Joseph J Poveromo, a well-known figure for his impact on ironmaking and steelmaking raw materials including blast furnace burden and gas distribution, development of fluxed iron ore pellets, utilization of iron ore concentrates in sintering, evaluating the impact of coal and coke properties on ironmaking processes, improvement of direct reduction grade pellets, advancement of natural gas utilization in ironmaking processes, promotion of iron ore based metallics in electric furnace steelmaking and analysis of economics of alternative ironmaking processes. Co-chaired by Dr. Paul Butterworth from CRU, Dr. Maarten Geerdes from Geerdes Advies, Dr. Mike Grant from Air Liquide, Dr. Yakov Gordon from Hatch, Dr. Koji Saito from Nippon Steel, Prof. Hong Yong Sohn from the University of Utah, Dr. Liming Lu from CSIRO, Dr. Dennis Lu from ArcelorMittal and Prof. Tateo Usui from Osaka University. This symposium will be held as part of the 2020 and 2021 Sustainable Industrial Processing Summit SIPS, an annual event that is deeply science-focused and industrial engineering-oriented, organized by the not-for-profit corporation FLOGEN Stars Outreach https:www.flogen.org, which is dedicated to achieving sustainability through science and technology. It incorporates summit plenary lectures from well-known speakers that address the link between scientific and engineering domains in the pursuit of sustainable development, as well as specific science and engineering symposia that feature technical presentations with the same goals in mind. We have confirmed until now the participation of the following 9 Nobel Laureates: M. Stanley Whittingham, Didier Queloz, Dan Shechtman, Sir Konstantin Novoselov, Aaron Ciechanover, Avram Hershko, Kurt Wuthrich, Ferid Murad, and Sir Richard J. Roberts.
