The comparative energy content of open-hearth steel with a scrap-process and electric steel in the modernization stage of electric steel smelting production is considered. The structure of steel energy content is revealed in the form of technological fuel number (TFN) and the main limiting factors of energy content are determined. Amarked reduction is demonstrated for the energy content of electric steel compared with open-hearth steel. The specific nature of the carburization process for scrap is demonstrated. Typical energy content indices are revealed. The main reserves of energy resource conservation are determined. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
