In view of the importance of climate change and the influence on it exerted by the iron and steelmaking industry, I have prepared, in this section of the website, a compilation of information from different official organizations, international environmental agencies, iron and steelmaking companies…, and some experts. Ordering everything, for a better understanding by students and people whose objective is to learn about the impact on the environment of the iron and steelmaking industry.

Global Steel Trade
The development of steel can be traced back years to the beginning of the Iron Age. Proving to be harder and stronger than bronze, which had previously been the most widely used metal, iron began to displace bronze in weaponry and tools. By the 17th century, iron's properties were well understood, but increasing urbanization in Europe demanded a more versatile structural metal. Undoubtedly, though, the most breakthrough in steel history came in when Henry Bessemer developed an effective way to use oxygen to reduce the carbon content in iron: The modern steel industry was born. At very high temperatures, iron begins to absorb carbon, which lowers the melting point of the metal, resulting in cast iron 2. The development of blast furnaces, first used by the Chinese in the 6th century BC but more widely used in Europe during the Middle Ages, increased the production of cast iron. Pig iron is molten iron run out of the blast furnaces and cooled in the main channel and adjoining molds.
Decarbonization challenge for steel
The steel industry has grown from ancient times, when a few men may have operated, periodically, a small furnace producing 10 kilograms, to the modern integrated iron- and steelworks, with annual steel production of about 1 million tons. The largest commercial steelmaking enterprise, Nippon Steel in Japan, was responsible for producing 26 million tons in , and 11 other companies generally distributed throughout the world each had outputs of more than 10 million tons. Excluding the Eastern-bloc countries, for which employment data are not available, some 1. That is equivalent to about tons of steel per person employed per year—a remarkably efficient use of human endeavour. Iron production began in Anatolia about bc , and the Iron Age was well established by bc. The technology of iron making then spread widely; by bc it had reached the western limits of Europe, and by bc it had reached China.

This one-of-a-kind experience allows you to click on each phase of steelmaking and provides a deeper understanding of the process through videos, photos, and detailed explanations of functions, equipment and materials used. The process starts in the center of the wheel with the three main ingredients of iron in the form of iron ore, coke and lime, which are fed into a blast furnace to produce molten iron. The molten iron is mixed with recycled steel scrap and further processed in a basic oxygen furnace to make steel. The electric arc furnace melts recycled steel scrap. The molten steel is formulated to precise chemical compositions during the secondary refining processes. The refined steel is then cast into a variety of solid shapes usually by a continuous casting method. The solidified shapes are processed into finished goods by various processes, including hot rolling, cold rolling, annealing and coating.
Chapter 2: Process Development. 7 Over the past years, steelmaking processes have improved dramatically. Overview of Steelmaking Processes In the next 15 to 20 years there will be a shift away from the blast furnace to new and.

In steelmaking, impurities such as nitrogen , silicon , phosphorus , sulfur and excess carbon most important impurity are removed from the sourced iron, and alloying elements such as manganese , nickel , chromium , carbon and vanadium are added to produce different grades of steel. Limiting dissolved gases such as nitrogen and oxygen and entrained impurities termed "inclusions" in the steel is also important to ensure the quality of the products cast from the liquid steel. Steelmaking has existed for millennia, but it was not commercialized on a massive scale until the late 14th century. An ancient process of steelmaking was the crucible process. In the s and s, the Bessemer process and the Siemens-Martin process turned steelmaking into a heavy industry.

Она ведь и сама кое-что себе позволяла: время от времени они массировали друг другу спину. Мысли его вернулись к Кармен. Перед глазами возникло ее гибкое тело, темные загорелые бедра, приемник, который она включала на всю громкость, слушая томную карибскую музыку. Он улыбнулся. Может, заскочить на секунду, когда просмотрю эти отчеты. Бринкерхофф взял первую распечатку.
Слова приятеля его очень удивили. Дело в том, что АНБ не только существовало, но и считалось одной из самых влиятельных правительственных организаций в США и во всем мире. Уже больше полувека оно занималось тем, что собирало электронные разведданные по всему миру и защищало американскую секретную информацию. О его существовании знали только три процента американцев. - АНБ, - пошутил приятель, - означает Агентство, которого Никогда не Было. Со смешанным чувством тревоги и любопытства Беккер принял приглашение загадочного агентства.
