How Steel Is Made

To produce steel, facilities use one of two processes: the basic oxygen furnace (BOF) or the electric arc furnace (EAF). The primary raw materials for the BOF are liquid hot metal (iron) from the blast furnace and steel scrap.. BOFs make up approximately 33 percent of U.S. production in 2016. The EAF process uses steel scrap and iron units to make new steel. EAF output accounts for about 66 percent of U.S. steel production in 2016.
