A decrease in the production of steel products means that there often will be a reduction in the industry's energy consumption and is supported by the data in Figure 2. As discussed in the next section, energy intensity can also be an explanation for the drop in the industry's energy consumption.
stainless steel scrap, production via the EAF route can be economically advantageous. In addition, the recycling system for stainless steel is very efficient and requires no subsidies. Over the past fourteen years the world has produced approximately 400 million metric tons of stainless steel (see Figure 1). World production
World crude steel production reached 1,691 million tonnes (Mt) in 2017. By 2050, steel use is projected to increase by 1.5 times that of present levels, to meet the needs of our growing population.1 Energy use in steelmaking Steel production is energy intensive. However, sophisticated energy
