Considering our frame conditions for developing and producing high quality corrosion protected steels, we cannot oversee significant changes. Environmental consciousness has risen not only since the Fridays for Future movement. Resulting legal regulations may find an echo in the way we will produce steel in the future soon, reducing our carbon footprint. Obviously, environment protection will change transportation, too, including individual travel. Which consequences are to be expected for car production in terms of figures and design, and consequently, for steel application? Covid-19 is governing our present every day’s working conditions. Which reactions to these will we keep in the future? And eventually, what could be the most interesting product and process developments we are looking at in this conference?
