Fernand Didelon graduated from the Ecole des Mines de Nancy where he obtained a MSc in materials and chemical engineering. He started his career in 1991 as a blast furnace process engineer in ArcelorMittal Dunkerque and moved to ArcelorMittal’s Florange plant as head of BF process, then head of BF and utilities production, and later head of sinter plant. During his time at the Florange, he took part in the Ulcos (ultra- low carbon steelmaking) project for implementing a demonstrator top gas recycling furnace at industrial scale.

From 2011 to 2021, he occupied various positions, including head of blast furnace, head of steelshop and chief operation officer. In 2021 he joined the green steel team of SMS-Paul Wurth in Luxemburg where he initiated the development of the EASyMelt concept and other decarbonization projects.

From March 2024 onward, within Phoenix Technologies SA, a consulting company, he supports steel plants in improving their operational performances, aiding them in selecting the most efficient decarbonization options for sustainable steelmaking.
