ENERGY REQUIREMENTS IN THE STEEL INDUSTRY
This paper examines fuel requirements for a variety of processing steps in steelmaking. Direct reduction, blast furnaces and basic oxygen furnaces (BOF's), and scrap melting in electric furnaces are considered for the primary production of steel. Continuous and ingot casting are considered together with finishing operations. Scrap iron and fuel requirements for different combinations of processing steps are given, and the effects of environmental regulations and capital requirements are also briefly considered.
