In early July 2012, the scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) proudly announced that they had made a breakthrough discovery in understanding the origins of the universe. The team of experts told the world’s media that they believed they had found the subatomic particle, the ‘Higgs boson’ commonly referred to as the ‘God particle’, that confirms our understanding of how the universe works. For ArcelorMittal this was great news, because 50,000 tonnes of our steel was produced by Flat Carbon Europe to build the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) – the particle accelerator that fires trillions of protons around a 27km tunnel at 99.99% of the speed of light. The CERN tender, issued in 1998, called for 50,000 tonnes of magnetic steel with strictly identical properties. And thanks to close collaboration between ArcelorMittal’s research and development (R&D)...
