The 10th anniversary of Intertech’s annual conference on metallurgical coke and coal will be held in Philadephia, PA, USA on October 16-18, 2006.

This year’s meeting will be chaired by Dr Neil Bristow, Chief Analyst, Carbon Steel Materials for BHP Billiton and Mr Andrew Aloe, President & CEO of Shenango Inc. Twenty industry experts will give presentations on October 17-18 at the Doubletree Philadelphia Hotel in Philadelphia, PA USA. Two intensive three-hour seminars will be held on October 16 followed by a key-note presentation by John Anton of Global Insight to kickoff a special 10th anniversary networking event.

At Met Coke World Summit 2006, speakers will present their views on the critical issues facing the metallurgical coke and coal industry today; implications of the strong steel market, increased demand from markets such as India and Brazil, rising transport costs, and the industry’s new tenuous market balance. Speakers will examine China’s domestic coke and steel industries; new mine projects in Canada; forecasts for the global steel industry; seaborne and rail transport trends; coke production and consumption trends in the United States; and new technologies and cost-reduction methods to streamline the cokemaking process. Over 220 executives are expected to attend this event from industries such as coal, coke, iron and steel, plant design, project development, and international trade and transport.

Intertech is a consultancy specializing in iron and steel, coke, metals, ores and specialty chemicals based in Portland Maine, USA. The firm produces approximately 30 industrial conferences each year in Europe, North America, and Asia.
