A mixture of iron ore and coal is then heated in a blast furnace to produce molten iron, or pig iron, from which steel is made. ArcelorMittal has a diversified fleet of production facilities to make steel, both basic oxygen furnaces and electric arc furnaces.
He faced rising costs for iron ore and coke, the primary burden material for his blast furnaces. Fortunately, he has ready access to fines from his DRI process, as well as a wet, carbonrich LD sludge and blast furnace dust from a neighboring steel mill.
