How is Steel Produced?

Global steel production is dependent on coal. 74% 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 1.6 billion tonnes in 2017.

Manufacturing steel delivers the goods and services that our societies need – healthcare, telecommunications, improved agricultural practices, better transport networks, clean water and access to reliable and affordable energy. Steel is an alloy based primarily on iron. As iron occurs only as Roofing-Sheet-Building-Material-Galvanized-Steel-Coiliron oxides in the earth’s crust, the ores must be converted, or ‘reduced’, using carbon. The primary source of this carbon is coking coal.
