Electric arc furnace
|This article is part of the Global Steel Plant Tracker, a project of Global Energy Monitor.|
An electric arc furnace (EAF) is a furnace that uses electric arcs to melt scrap steel and convert it into liquid steel (hot metal). Direct reduced iron (DRI) can also be used as a substitute for scrap metal in EAF steelmaking.
