ENERGY USE PATTERNS IN THE METALLURGICAL INDUSTRIES

This paper summarizes available information on current energy consumption in various sectors of the metallurgical industries. A knowledge of current energy use patterns and projected trends, is particularly important to the metallurgical industries because (1) their requirements represent a large proportion of the total industrial load and (2) the social and economic consequences of curtailments arising from prolonged energy shortages could be devastating. Production of primary metals together with metals fabricated constitute about 22.1% of the industrial direct use of fossil fuels and about 6.5% of the total U.S. use.
