The document contains a technical description of the direct reduction route of producing steel from iron ore. The report discusses the mining and processing of iron ore, the reduction process, steelmaking using an electric arc furnace, environmental management within and outside a direct reduction steelmaking plant; and special considerations with respect to direct reduction in developing countries. This technical review concludes that while the direct reduction route of steelmaking can produce better environmental conditions than the classical (blast furnace) routes, strict measures must be applied to protect workers and local residents surrounding plants.
