Processes - Ferrous (Iron / Steel): Overview

Raw Materials (ore, coke, sinter, scrap, etc.)
Whether non-ferrous or ferrous, raw materials are utilized in the production of primary metals. These materials include iron ore, coke, sinter and scrap (for iron and steel production) and bauxite and scrap (for aluminum). All are processed, sorted, dried, preheated, or otherwise prepared for subsequent melting, refining and pouring into shapes for further processing.
