Steelmaking and Refining | Introduction to Chemistry

Steelmaking is the second step in producing steel from iron ore. In this stage, impurities such as sulfur, phosphorus, and excess carbon are removed from the raw iron, and alloying elements such as manganese, nickel, chromium, and vanadium are added to produce the exact steel required.

How to make steel with zero emissions: Fortescue's Andrew

The answer isn't to stop mining iron ore, which is critical to the production of steel and humanity. The answer is to make steel using zero emission energy." Forrest is betting on hydrogen as the key to getting there. He laid out two plans. "You replace coal in the furnace with your old friend: hydrogen. But instead of emitting vast clouds of CO2, you emit nothing but water vapor. To strengthen the steel, just add the carbon separately.
