At Tenova, innovation is more than just part of how we do business. It’s the foundation of our success.
Every company has to innovate to survive, but Tenova is unique in the metals industry in the way it designs, develops and promotes innovative technologies. We establish ongoing dialogue with our stakeholders and attract top talent, accumulating input and experience that enable us to see further into the future and develop technologies that drive the industry forward.
We put these insights at the service of our clients, helping them create competitive advantages within their markets of reference.
This focus on innovation plays a key role in our commitment to sustainability and the green transition of metals. It keeps us active and engaged, from analyzing market trends to participating in national and international group research projects; from playing a protagonist’s role in key industry organizations to staying abreast of important metal and mining industry trends.
Research & Development
Everything we do in R&D is designed to help our clients and partners achieve their business goals.
We leverage the synergy between local specialists and our global R&D team, letting ideas spread across the company, encouraging people at every level to enrich solutions with their collective know-how and expertise.
This kind of company-wide cross-fertilization enables us to both identify solutions that can increase the efficiency and productivity of existing facilities, as well as reduce their global and local environmental impact.
The result? Sustainable solutions for metals and mining that help speed up the energy transition.
Small steps, big innovation. From reducing production costs and energy consumption to introducing cutting-edge green features, we believe no improvement is too small, especially when innovation addresses clear market needs.
It’s about improving and upgrading existing products, services and processes.
You never know where you’ll find the next great idea. We leave no stone unturned, participating in cooperatively-funded projects at both the national and international levels, collaborating with relevant research and technology organizations worldwide, seeking out innovative start-ups and more, and encouraging ongoing dialogue with both our stakeholders and our peers.
In keeping with our open approach, we participate in numerous national and international associations including: ESTEP, AFIL, AIM, CFI, Next Generation Manufacturing Canada, the American Iron and Steel Institute and others. Our active participation in the international metals network helps us make a significant contribution to shaping our industry’s future.
Laboratories & Research Centers
Our efforts in innovation are directly supported by our own Tenova laboratories and research centers in Italy and Israel. Reliance on these internal R&D facilities provides two key advantages. First, it allows us to test, modify, develop and experiment ideas in-house. Second, it gives us an opportunity to share facilities with partners, expanding our open innovation efforts.
