To open the World DRI and Pellet Congress 2019, Mr. Hassan Shashaa, COO of Emirates Steel, will give an address reflecting on the Middle Eastern market:

  • Is the higher demand for DRI a product of tight upstream supply - or increased steel mill capacity?
  • What regions are emerging as competitors for MENA's established supply of DR pellet?
  • How have volatile prices of DRI/HBI affected regional steel mills' purchasing power?
Hassan Shashaa, Chief Operating Officer, Emirates Steel Industries PJSC

Session I: Who is feeding the direct reduction market?
