Review of Progress in Developing Continuous Steelmaking
Continuous steelmaking has been a topic of extensive research during the last one hundred fifty years. At least 80 different continuous steelmaking processes have been proposed worldwide with several progressing to the experimental and pilot plant stage. However, up to this point in time, there has been no success in designing a fully continuous steelmaking process that is commercially viable. This paper evaluates historic developments in continuous steelmaking and explores the possibilities of developing a new process for continuous steelmaking that could become commercially acceptable in the future.
