Steel industry is one of the essential industries for the development of any community. In fact, it is really the base for numerous industries that could not have been established without steel industry. The European industrial revolution at the beginning of this century was actually founded on this industry. There are three basic routes to obtain finished steel products: (1) integrated steel production, (2) secondary processing, and (3) direct reduction.
Integrated steel production involves transforming coal to coke in coke ovens, while iron ore is sintered or belletized prior to being fed into the blast furnace (BF). The ore is reduced in the blast furnace to obtain hot metal containing some 4% carbon and smaller quantities of other alloying elements. Next the hot metal is converted to steel in the basic oxygen furnace (BOF). Then, it is continuously cast to obtain semi-finished products, such as blooms, bars or slabs. These semi-finished products are rolled to the finished shapes of bars, sheet, rail, H or I beams.
The secondary processing, often called minimills, starts with steel scrap which is melted in an electrical arc furnace (EAF). The molten steel produced is possibly treated in a ladle furnace and then continuously cast and finished in a rolling operation. Originally, minimills provided only lower grade products, especially reinforcing bars. But, they recently have been able to capture a growing segment of the steel market.
An alternative mode of steel production is the direct reduction method. In this method, production starts with high grade Iron ore pellets which are reduced with natural gas to sponge pellets. Then, the sponge iron pellets are fed into an electrical arc furnace. The resulting steel is continuously cast and rolled into a final shape.
In this report, we define the steel industry to include semi-finished products (steel billets) produced by continuous casting, and rolling of these semi-finished products into strip, sheet, rail, H- or I-shaped finished steel.
