Welcome to pitch your solution to German buyers in steel industry, that are looking for ways to decarbonize their companies! Business Finland's Decarbonizing Industries program is hosting a series of online meet the buyer meetings for Finnish companies interested in the German market in steel sector. These meetings will foster fruitful business collaborations for Finnish companies and establish direct contacts with relevant counterparts.

Industrial production represents more than a third of Germany’s economy. Industries such as steel, basic metal, and chemical build the backbone of German industry and account for about 20–30 percent of all CO2 emissions in Germany.

Germany has already set targets and taken many steps in terms of emission reduction, but future decarbonization opportunities are generated by the current geopolitical context and the aims to reduce emissions. Investments up to EUR 75 billion by 2050 are awaited in steel and chemical industries alone.

Key solutions wanted in the market are:

  • Energy & material efficiency
  • biomass
  • electrification
  • clean hydrogen
  • power to gas
  • circularity
  • process switch and CCUS technologies
  • digitally integrated production and cross sectoral digitalization
