Steel is an essential raw material with a wide array of applications throughout society.
Most of the world’s iron and steel industries use methods that require coking coal, chiefly the integrated blast furnace and basic oxygen furnace method (BF-BOF). This form of steel manufacture has changed little over the years. Electric arc furnace (EAF) production has existed for many years, but massive supplies of reliable and affordable electricity are limits to growth.
In this webinar from the IEA Clean Coal Centre, a technology collaboration programme, organised under the auspices of the International Energy Agency, learn about current trends and challenges in the coking coal market.
