We welcome steelmakers ROGESA Roheisengesellschaft Saar mbH and Steel Dynamics Inc Columbus as our two newest members.

ROGESA is a joint subsidiary of AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke, Dillingen, and Saarstahl AG, Völklingen, with each directly or indirectly holding 50% of the company’s shares. ROGESA was founded in 1981 and currently produces up to 4.6 million tons of hot metal each year. A progressive company, Rogesa is taking a new approach to reducing carbon emissions and is for the first time using hydrogen in its two blast furnaces.
