Materials Processing Institute and University of Leicester collaborate to support NISCO

16 August 2018 

Leading UK-based research and innovation centre the Materials Processing Institute has continued to strengthen its ties with international steel producers, as part of a collaborative £500,000 research project.

The Institute has partnered with the University of Leicester and TWI Ltd to support Chinese steel manufacturer Nanjing Iron and Steel Company’s (NISCO). The project forms part of a £2m investment by NISCO at the University of Leicester in creating a UK-based steel research activity.

The collaboration aims to develop technology that can control the solidification process during the casting of very thick semi-finished steel products at NISCO’s production line, and improve productivity by reducing the segregation and porosity in these materials.
