steel production, coking coal - World Coal Association

2012-6-18  Global steel production is dependent on coal. 70% of the steel produced today uses coal. Metallurgical coal – or coking coal – is a vital ingredient in the steel making process. World crude steel production was 1.4 billion tonnes in 2010. Around 721 million tonnes of coking coal was used in the production of steel.

Steel production - Coal steel World Coal Association

Steel production. Steel is produced via two main routes: the blast furnace-basic oxygen furnace (BF-BOF) route and electric arc furnace (EAF) route. The BF-BOF route is used for 71% of steel produced, whilst the EAF route accounts for 29% of steel produced. The key difference between these routes is the material used to produce the steel and ...

Do we really need coal to make steel? – Wildsight

2020-6-1  In the meantime, we need to reduce our use of steelmaking coal as much as we can. Fortunately, only 70% of steel is made with coal today. The other 30% of the world’s steel production uses electric arc furnaces, fed with recycled steel or iron smelted with natural gas and hydrogen.

How does coke and coal play into steel making? -

2016-6-22  Coke is used as a fuel and a reducing agent in melting iron ore. It is produced by baking coal until it becomes carbon by burning off impurities without burning up the coal itself. When coke is consumed it generates intense heat but little smoke, making it ideal for smelting iron and steel. Prior to the 1880’s, steel was produced using charcoal.
