In this module of the Steelmaking Fundamentals series, we will focus mainly on the Blast Furnace Route. Within the course, you’ll meet Stela, the Steel Learning Android. She will take you through the what and why of steel, the basics of integrated steelmaking, key steps in integrated steelmaking and the application of steel.
In the future modules of this series, you will learn about the greener methods of steelmaking using an Electric Arc Furnace, Direct Reduced Iron and renewable energies.
