Welcome to pitch your solution to the UK buyers in steel and chemical 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 UK market in steel and chemical sectors. These meetings will foster fruitful business collaborations for Finnish companies and establish direct contacts with relevant counterparts. 

The steel and chemical sectors are major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions because of their heavy reliance on fossil fuels and energy-intensive operations. To achieve net zero in the steel industry, strategies involve enhancing energy efficiency and reducing steel consumption. Key technology pathways include utilising electric arc furnaces and recycled steel, adopting green hydrogen-based direct reduced iron, and implementing carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS).

The chemicals sector plays a vital role in the net zero economy, producing essential materials for renewable energy and transportation. Promising advancements in hydrogen production, carbon capture, and electrification offer hope for significant decarbonisation in these sectors. 


Finnish companies, that have commercial decarbonizing solutions for steel industry & chemistry and process industry wanting to enter the UK market, or the companies, that are already operating in the UK market and want to expand their operations.


1-hour one-to-one discussions with the UK companies are organized via Teams in autumn 2023. There is a limited number of slots to this event, and the meetings will be allocated on first come first served basis.

After registering for the event, we will ask you to fill in your company’s offering to a one-pager template that our consultant partner will utilize in contacting suitable companies and creating the business matches. The registered companies will get a detailed schedule of their meetings. Please note, that we cannot guarantee one-to-one meetings to every participant.
