Cornerstone for steel production and non-ferrous metallurgy
The construction industry would hardly be able to function without steel and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum and copper. And that's not all. These materials are needed in countless places all over the world, in every conceivable shape and volume. Steel, in particular, is the most commonly used construction material in the world.
Every year around 1.6 billion tons of steel are produced and that figure is still growing fast, in India for example. This material is used everywhere for construction: in multi-story buildings, bridges, trains, and machines, but also in everyday objects such as screws, paper clips, pots or knives.
Schenck Process is involved right from the first stages of manufacture for steel and NF metals.
Turning the raw materials ore and coal into usable construction materials as efficiently as possible remains a complex process even today. And our products significantly improve the process.
