Description

This dataset describes the process of converter steelmaking, where crude steel is produced from inputs of hot metal (liquid iron) and scrap steel. This process is typically utilized in a steelmaking plant, specifically designated as 'Process Z17' within a factory with identical nomenclature. The steel produced through this process is commonly utilised in the construction industry, automotive manufacturing, infrastructure, appliance production, and for various types of machinery and tools. Users of this dataset should consider the specific environmental impacts of the converter steelmaking process, such as energy consumption and emissions. The data should be applied with considerations of geographic relevance, technological currency, and alignment with the intended scope of the LCA study, including the system boundaries and any allocation procedures that may be required. Users should also account for the potential for recycling the steel produced and adhere to accepted standards for calculating and reporting LCA results.
