The reduction of industrial emissions is only possible with steel and requires an innovative steel industry. Economic and competitive steel production is only possible with sustainable and efficient production. Digital and holistic innovations in steel-producing processes can help reduce the use of raw materials and optimize value-adding processes, thereby improving environmental protection.

The focus of the Digital Innovation Call of austria wirtschaftsservice GmbH (aws) are innovative projects for the development of digital services, digital products or digital processes. Additionally, these innovative digitization projects should contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

qoncept has submitted a project for the development of specific software solutions to accelerate the digital transformation of steelmaking and to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs. The focus is on SDG 9.4 (creating sustainability through modernization of infrastructure and retrofitting of industries with increased resource-use efficiency), subsequently affecting SDG 13 (climate action).

After a successful initial selection from over 100 projects, we were able to convince the selection jury with our project pitch. We are more than proud to say that with the support of aws we are creatively pursuing our goals and keep focused on our mission: We digitize and transform metallurgical processes into software that creates added value.
