Emerging Technologies for Iron and Steelmaking

The iron and steel industry has undergone a technological revolution in the last 40 years. In a relatively short time, the North American industry has observed the complete disappearance of basic open hearth processing, as well as the wide spread adoption of continuous casting and the near complete shift of long product production to the electric arc furnace sector. These and other developments have dramatically affected the way steel is made, the price, quality and range of products generated, and changed the basic structure of the industry.

American Coke and Coal Chemicals Institute

ACCCI was formed in 1944 by companies interested in establishing a forum to discuss and act upon issues of common concern to the metallurgical coke and coal chemicals industry. Today, ACCCI members represent over 95% of the metallurgical coke produced in the U.S. and Canada, including both merchant coke producers and integrated steel companies with coke production capacity, and 100% of companies producing coal chemicals in the U.S. and Canada.  Nearly 150 representatives from about 45 companies contribute their knowledge and expertise to enhance the effectiveness of the Institute’s programs.
