Steel Manufacturing

Louisiana scrap buyer via blast furnaces is based on iron ore and uses scrap as an additional element when the iron from the blast furnace is refined to steel in a basic oxygen converter. Steel production in electric arc furnaces is almost completely based on scrap.This is not only highly resource-efficient, it also reduces the overall environmental footprint of steel making considerably. A holistic perspective integrating primary steel production in blast furnaces, as well as steel recycling in the electric arc furnace route, shows CO2 emissions from steel production decreasing with every recycling cycle.
