On October 1, 2021, the world exhibition Expo 2020 starts in Dubai. The theme for the Swedish participation is "Co-creation for Innovation". We are an official partner and will showcase the latest progress on the way to a necessary global transformation of the iron and steel industry.
In Dubai we will present three strategically important joint projects in the Swedish pavilion:
- We're setting a new world standard for sustainable mining. Through digitalisation, automation, electrification, new operation methods and carbon dioxide-free production we will set a new world standard for mining.
- We will produce carbon dioxide-free iron sponge for fossil-free steel. Through the shift from iron ore pellets to carbon dioxide-free sponge iron we will take an important step forward in the value chain, increase the value of our products while giving our customers direct access to carbon dioxide-free iron for steel production.
- We will extract critical minerals from mining waste. Using fossil-free technology we will extract strategically important minerals and phosphorus for mineral fertilizers from today’s mine waste.
Local meets global - straight from the mine
In connection with Expo, LKAB will invite you to our part of the world and the value chain of our industry. In the spring of 2022, we will arrange a number of hybrid events based on the operations in the north of Sweden, where we, together with partners, will host discussions on the transformation of the industry and the sustainable development in the world - directly from the world's largest underground mine for iron ore in Kiruna.
