Help us help you prevent unnecessary carbon emissions.
70% of steel is produced in blast furnaces. Coal is used in blast furnaces to smelt iron ore. Steel scrap and limestone are added to molten iron, and oxygen used to remove impurities, leaving almost pure liquid steel. Nowadays, 1.2 billion tons of coal are used in global steel production, about 15% of total coal consumption worldwide.
1,700 lbs of coal is required to produce 1 ton of steel in blast furnaces. Most other steel is produced in electric arc furnaces, generally powered by coal-fired power stations. Arc furnaces use 300 lbs of coal to produce a ton of steel. A ton of steel from ore produces over a ton of carbon dioxide emissions. Recycling scrap uses a quarter of that, but reusing the equipment prevents all those emissions.
Repurposing steel equipment saves tons of carbon emissions. It also saves time and money because it can be delivered and returned to service more quickly and less expensively that new orders.
