Description

This dataset describes a process specific to the steelmaking industry, where crude steel is produced using a converter steelmaking process. The process typically involves the transformation of hot metal derived from iron or recycled scrap steel in a single operation at an industrial facility. This process is commonly used in the manufacture of steel products such as construction materials, automotive components, and appliances. Users of this dataset should note that the data represents a single operational process specific to the converter method of steelmaking. Care should be taken to apply this data accurately within a life cycle assessment (LCA), as it does not cover the entire lifecycle of steel products. Ensure that appropriate system boundaries are set, and that the data is only used for scenarios that match the technological capabilities of the described process. Consideration should also be given to regional differences in technology and practices that may affect the results when applying this data.
