Abstract
Trends in consumption of minerals in iron and steel production were identified, and average and best practices were compared. The potential effects of direct-reduced material upon mineral supply needs were estimated for substitution in (1) blast furance burdens and (2) electric-arc steelmaking charges. Collateral factors are analyzed, and principal metallurgical, industrial, and environmental consequences are discussed. Implications for the iron ore industry of the Great Lakes region are mentioned.
