USE OF ENERGY IN THE STEEL INDUSTRY DURING THE PAST TWO DECADES

Trends in energy consumption by the world's steel industry are examined with special emphasis on the Japanese industry, and technical steps that could be effective in saving energy are presented. One example is the reduction of blast furnace fuel rate. Since energy used in iron and steel manufacture mostly comes from coking coal, recommendations are given on how to increase the efficiency of this coal, as well as on the viability of developing noncoking coals.
