The Production of Steel:
The figures shown below schematically describes Steel Production. The process is broken up into
two sections; the Primary Flow-Sheet followed by the Finishing Flow-Sheet.
The primary flow-sheet is broken down further into two streams; the KOBM (Basic Oxygen Steelmaking) Stream,
and the EAF (Electric Arc Furnace) Stream. The KOBM Stream uses primarily iron ore, coal, and limestone as feed
materials; whereas the EAF Stream produces steel mostly from recycled scrap.
Please note that information on the finishing flow sheet is not yet available.
