Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon, and the steel industry uses mineral or vegetable coal as fuel to reach the high temperatures necessary to melt the ore and also as a reducer to remove the oxygen from the iron, purifying it and leaving it free to bind to the carbon, inside an equipment called blast furnace. World production of crude steel exceeds 1,5 billion tons per year, feeding the entire steel chain with plates, coils, rebars, wires, steel profiles and bars.
