18 January 2013 Brussels

The white book of steel is an informative and entertaining look at steel’s enormous impact on the history of mankind, and the role that it is set to play in helping to shape the future of humanity.

Tracing steel’s development from the first iron that fell from the sky in meteorites to the Bessemer process that became the lynchpin of the Industrial Revolution to the innovations of today that are developing ever more varieties of stronger, lighter and increasingly versatile steel, The white book of steel is an unforgettable journey into the past and future.

Accompanied by worldsteel’s new microsite The Steel Story and also available as an e-Book, The white book of steel is now available from the online bookshop. A PDF copy of the book can be downloaded for free from the website. Printed copies can be ordered from the bookshop.
