Blast furnaces convert iron ore and metallurgical coal to pig iron (aka hot metal, crude iron), which is often the primary raw material used in steelmaking. Blast furnaces contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emissions, particularly carbon dioxide, due to the carbon-intensive nature of coke used as fuel. As the world strives to mitigate climate change and transition to a low-carbon future, phasing out blast furnaces in favor of cleaner ironmaking processes or scrap-based steel is imperative.
