Throughout the world there is a need for steel products – iron and steel. The fact that this is most energy-consuming and cheaper process – production of ferrous metals. The prices for iron are low, and much more advantageous to carry out processing of scrap iron and steel in the varietal than the actual smelt iron itself. It turns out that iron can not be created without the blessings of civilization to which we are accustomed to – machinery, electronics and all others. Hear other arguments on the topic with Professor Roy Taylor. Impossible without the iron and steel and to create industrial equipment, industrial equipment and no you can not get to enrich and make iron and steel. That is, the circle.
Iron ore is mined or mine manner, or a more economical method – a career. This process is very energy forms a large waste rock dumps, and we can say that it is ecologically dirty. The Soviet Union in 80 and 90 years of the twentieth century, firmly led not only to iron ore, and smelting of iron and steel. Today, more than 40 percent of companies engaged in mining and processing iron ore, abandoned, which naturally affected the production of ferrous metals. The smelting of iron and steel have not only surpassed the United States, Japan and the island. Currently, more than 60 percent of steel and half of all produced steel in this country are handled by outdated equipment and this equipment is physically exhausted itself by 80 percent or more. Require powerful injection of funds to acquire or manufacture in-house a new modern equipment and will certainly return to Russia's leadership in the core area, providing growth of the economy – the steel industry. To this end, the Russian state has absolutely everything – huge reserves of minerals, top-class specialists, engineers, but it lacks the main thing – good will of those in power.
