Almost everything that makes modern life possible uses steel components – and that means using steelmaking coal to produce them. Nearly all new steel is produced using iron ore and steelmaking coal, and demand is on the rise. By 2050, global steel use is expected to increase by 20% to meet the needs of our growing population. With Canada being the world’s third largest exporter of this steelmaking coal, Alberta is being presented with a unique opportunity.
Open our fact sheet to read more on some of the alternative technologies coming into the market, and why steel (and steelmaking coal) is just as important now as it ever was in Alberta.
