Description

This electric arc furnace steelmaking process is an industrial method primarily used for producing crude steel from a mixture of hot metal and scrap steel. It is suited for applications that require high-quality steel, such as in the construction sector for infrastructure development, the automotive industry for vehicle manufacturing, or the production of machinery and heavy equipment. When utilizing this dataset for the electric arc furnace steelmaking process, it is essential to consider the specific proportions of hot metal and scrap steel used, as well as any additional inputs or outputs relevant to the system boundary. Users must also account for the technological applicability regarding the age and efficiency of the furnace and adapt the data to reflect regional energy mixes and environmental standards. Note that this data should be used in context with the defined technology level (Z4 factory) and may not be representative of other technology levels or furnace types.
