Steelmakers Moving Towards Electric-Arc Furnaces (EAF)

****** steelmakers are gradually shifting from blast furnace to EAF to manufacture steel. EAF requires much lower investment and offers higher efficiency compared to a blast furnace. The use of EAF enables steelmakers to produce steel from 100% scrap metal feedstock, reducing the overall energy consumed to produce steel as compared to steel made from ores. To capitalize on this, steel manufacturers are replacing blast furnaces with EAFs in their steel plants.
