voestalpine will once more be a sought-after dialogue partner at the 2019 coil winding trade fair CWIEME in Berlin. The voestalpine companies will be presenting efficient and environmentally-friendly solutions for the electrical industry, as well as offering visitors the chance to see a Gen2 Formula E race car in person.
voestalpine will be bringing more than just innovative products to this year’s CWIEME in Berlin, which runs from May 21 to 23: the Formula E event in Berlin the following weekend (May 25), part of the voestalpine European Races, will also make its presence clearly felt on exhibition stand D21 in Hall 2.2.

Our path to a green future
We are upping the pace of emissions reduction. greentec steel from voestalpine is Austria’s largest climate protection program. Starting in 2027, this program will reduce Austria’s annual CO2 emissions by almost 5%. 2024 marks the start of the partial shift from the blast furnace to the electric arc furnace (EAF) route—once unresolved funding issues in Austria are clarified.
