Delegates are now confirming their participation at Intergalva 2022 and the list of exhibitors is getting even longer! The two main event sponsors – GIMECO and W Pilling – will be the centrepiece of the exhibition area and will provide the usual refreshments between and after the conference sessions. Delegates to Intergalva 2018 will remember the hospitality of the ‘Pilling Bar!
The initial response from the global industry is very encouraging – with delegates from South Africa, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Mexico, Canada, India, Morocco, Brazil, Argentina as well as most European countries already registered to attend.
Due the Easter holiday period – the deadline for the ‘early’ bird’ lower registration fees has now been extended to 29 April.
The Intergalva 2022 conference programme has been adjusted in response to the significant challenges faced by the galvanizing industry in energy supply and the future decarbonisation of operations. Papers will include options for electric heating and will explore the use of hydrogen for furnace heating.
The importance of batch galvanized steel to achieving society’s net-zero goals and achieving greater circularity will also be explored in expert presentations and panel discussions involving industry leaders, politicians and other stakeholders. The detailed programme will be posted on 25 April.
The optional masterclasses on key topics are already proving popular with delegates. Topics include - Energy Consumption and Decarbonisation; Zinc Consumption and Kettle Practice; Optimising Pre-treatment; Jigging; Productivity; Environmental Permits: Guide to the new EU BREF.
Optional visits to galvanizing plants in Italy are available on 23 and 24 June – including the opportunity to visit Pompeii within some options. Accompanying persons (e.g., wife or husband) can also take optional sightseeing tours in Rome and attend the Intergalva social events.
