Title

Study of Current Steelmaking Practices to Evaluate the Viability of Continuous Steelmaking

Abstract

The steelmaking practices of eight U.S. scrap-based mills are evaluated and compared in this report. The findings are a summary from an industrial study that is based on surveys, observations of metallurgical practices, and visits with the operators of the eight participating mills. This study is a first step to better define the opportunities and challenges of building and operating a scrap-based, truly continuous steelmaking (CS) process. Research on continuous steelmaking at the University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR) and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) started in May of 2003 in collaboration with eight steel mills and three steelmaking technology suppliers with the support and funding of the US Department of Energy (DOE).
