UNITECR 2023: World Refractory Conference comes to a successful close

Höhr-Grenzhausen, October 2, 2023

The Refractory World Conference UNITECR ended last Friday with many highlights. From Sept. 26 - Sept. 29, 2023, 1,122 participants attended the Unified International Technical Conference on Refractories ⟮UNITECR⟯.

This was more than ever before at such a conference. The last UNITECR on European soil was in Vienna in 2015 and had 842 participants. From 330 submitted presentation topics, 219 speakers were invited by a scientific committee. In addition, 53 researchers were able to present their work on posters.

The main theme of the event was "The Carbon Challenge" - the current positioning of the refractory industry on the challenges for product manufacturing and application in the customer segments of steel, cement or glass.
