Chronic exposure to smoke from traditional cooking practices is one of the world’s biggest – but least well-known – killers. This new brochure from ISSF explains why stainless steel is part of the solution for this problem. It highlights the health and environmental effects and then introduces different kind of alternative stoves that can be used like forced air stoves or solar cooking stoves.
ISSF: Global stainless crude steel production in Q1 2013 higher than last year
Stainless Steel : 03 June, 2013
Based on preliminary data, global stainless crude steel production in the first quarter of 2013 was almost 9.4 million metric tonnes (Mt) according to the International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF). Compared to the first quarter of 2012, this is an increase of 6.0%. However, all areas except China showed decreased production volumes in the year-on-year comparison.
Another record year for stainless steel production but increase uneven
Stainless Steel : 18 May, 2013
The International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF) has released preliminary figures for 2012 which show that stainless steel production grew by 5.2% to reach a record high of 35.4 million metric tonnes (Mt). China accounted for the increase in production, with other regions of the world showing negative growth, mainly due to de-stocking.
Stainless steel sector rationalisation *inevitable*
Stainless Steel : 02 March, 2013

MEPS: Mild recovery in stainless prices forecast for 2013
Stainless Steel : 03 January, 2013
It's that time of the year when participants in the stainless steel supply chain try to predict how the market will perform in the coming twelve months. Producers and distributors have been hoping, since the global economic crash began in 2008, that an upturn is on the horizon. However, the prevailing consensus, at least in the West, is that 2013 will not be very different from this year.
Rising nickel prices give a lift to global stainless steel selling values
Stainless Steel : 02 October, 2012
The usual, seasonal upturn in demand for stainless steel has failed to occur, so far. In most years, distributors and end-users allow their inventories to run low during the summer holiday period, then rebuild stocks in early autumn before what they hope will be a busy few months before the year-end. On this occasion though, there has been little or no pickup in activity.

January world stainless steel prices slip but upturn believed to be imminent
Stainless Steel : 05 February, 2010
Raw material costs, end-user demand and the aims of the producers have all influenced the stainless steel market, which currently appears to be at something of a crossroads. Demand in Korea, Taiwan and China has been much less influenced by the recession in the West. Stainless steel production has continued at levels much closer to full capacity than has been the case in Europe or North America, where the post-recession pick-up in demand is eagerly awaited.
