Cost Models

We can prepare cost models for raw material production (including coke, sinter, DRI), iron and steelmaking (BOF, EAF and induction furnace), casting and rolling (including flat, long or tube products). These models can be prepared for any region of the world, or for any nominated facility. Please contact us for further information.

Example here shows 2020 liquid steel cost for EAF-based steelmaking in a notional 1 mt / year coastal plant in Japan.

Cost models may be supplied for single or linked process steps (e.g. EAF + caster + bar mill); and with more or less detail than shown here.
