Production of Steel

When iron is combined with carbon, recycled steel, and other elements, it is transformed into a much stronger material called Steel which can be 1,000 times stronger than iron.

Wide use of Steel

Steel is essential to modern society. Steel protects and provides strong frameworks for our buildings and infrastructure, including renewable energy infrastructure. It can be found in rails, roads, vehicles and domestic appliances. Steel delivers our food and water and enables energy generation and transmission.

Met coal, a fundamental ingredient in the production of steel, enables the construction of renewable energy infrastructure which is critical for the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Total global crude steel production reached 1.9 billion tonnes in 2021. Steel production is broadly used as follows:

Sustainability of Steel

Steel is 100% recyclable and can be reused infinitely. On average new steel products contain 30% recycled steel. Steel products are durable and last a long time, with the average life span for a steel product being 40 years.

The strength and durability of steel has made it the most important material in our everyday lives.

Its multi-functional nature allows for broad use in everything from major infrastructure projects, to transport including cars and airplanes, and even common household appliances. Steel is also a core component of next generation renewable energy solutions such as solar, wind and hydro, and can also be recycled, making it uniquely sustainable material to be used for generations to come.

Energy consumption per tonne of steel

reduced by 60%

since the 1960s, which has contributed to a significant decrease in CO2 intensity

New lightweight high-strength steels make applications

25 - 40% lighter & stronger.

These new steels help other industries reduce their environmental footprint

Steel Starts Here

Coronado is a leading metallurgical coal producer and trusted supplier to the global steel industry.

Metallurgical coal is an essential ingredient in the production of steel, which is the most utilised metal in the world and an essential material underpinning social and economic growth. Steel’s strength and durability make it critical in the construction of major infrastructure projects (including renewable energy infrastructure), transportation technology, electrical equipment, and everyday household goods such as appliances.

As the world’s population continues to grow and urbanise, steelmakers and their suppliers will play a vital role in providing quality products that support a wide variety of uses well into the future.
