The DRI and Mini-mills Conference returned after an extremely successful launch last year. We welcomed over 100 delegates from across the DRI and steel industries and covered some of the most important challenges and opportunities facing North American steel makers.
This year we fused the event with our 8th Steel Scrap Conference and brought together the two key raw materials in North American steelmaking.
