Event description

Description

The University of Wollongong and BlueScope have a long-standing history of partnership, which continues to this day through the Steel Research Hub: A research-led centre for innovations in steel making and steel products.

Uni in the Brewery and the Southern Manufacturing Innovation Group (SMIG) have joined forces to showcase three pioneering examples underway at the Steel Research Hub.

Cheaper, quicker, sustainable mid-rise apartments
Dr Emma Heffernan will cover a cutting-edge approach to framework for mid-rise buildings that delivers apartments that are not only cheaper and quicker to build, but are also more environmentally friendly.

Anti-fouling coating for steel surfaces
Dan Yang will discuss new anti-microbial coatings for steel surfaces which could radically improve the resistance of BlueScope’s COLORBOND products to ‘fouling’ by fungal colonies, and thus offer a key durability benefit over competitor products.

Improving production process to reduce costs
Dr Andrew Johnstone will highlight how his team’s collaborative research on the jet-stripping process on the metallic coating line may provide new insights for manufacturing superior coated steel products, more cost-effectively.

Join our speakers afterwards for complimentary refreshments.
