Turkish steel exporters strengthen their cooperation with Romania

 The mission of the delegation is primarily; to increase the efficiency of the steel industry in the Balkans, to expand the trade volume and to consolidate trade relations with Romania, the fifth largest market.

After the contacts of the Steel Exporters' Association with Romania, the trade volume between the two countries is expected to increase through B2B meetings. The delegation attended with the representatives of 25 companies and negotiated for new collaborations and joint investments.

This is approximately 1.3 billion dollars, which is 18 percent of exports. steel industry makes its dollar. We hope that this year, too, we can catch the 15 percent band." said.

Reminding that there will be serious infrastructure investments originating from the EU in 2023 in Romania, Aslan stated that Turkish companies received jobs from both steel export and contracting works from the tenders to be made.

We are ready to minimize carbon emissions

Adnan Aslan, stating that no country is ready for the "European Green Consensus Carbon Regulation", said, "We make 75 percent of our steel production with electric arc furnaces. 3 of our companies make it from high ore." he said.

Noting that the electric arc furnace is the production leg that has the least impact on environmental emissions, Aslan said, "The greenhouse gas emissions of our production are less than one-fifth of the blast furnaces. Therefore, it is easier for us to prepare." made its assessment.

Pointing out that steel exports amounted to 21 million tons last year, while imports amounted to two-thirds, Aslan noted that imports are not long products, but flat products.

Now, on April 1, there will be another 19 percent reduction in the use of natural gas in the industry." used the phrases.
