Steel is an alloy made up of mixed metals such as iron and carbon. This material is favored for its durability and low manufacturing cost which is responsible for its widespread application from infrastructures to vehicles and even electrical appliances. 

 Iron is the base metal used in the production of steel, the manufacturing of steel involves iron ore smelted in blast furnaces and other metals added to it to produce steel with desired properties. However, this process causes the iron to contain more carbon than required and has to be reprocessed multiple times for the dosage of carbon to be just the correct amount. Modern methods of steel production require the use of coke instead of charcoal in blast furnaces for more economical reasons. 

Although recent improvements in production processes have made it possible for higher grade steel to be produced with lower costs, electrical furnaces used in modern production lines are still costly due to high electrical energy usage.  In 2018, approximately 1,808 million tonnes of crude steel was produced, Asia alone was responsible for two-thirds of the output.  Production-wise, China accounts for half of the world’s steel production and is the largest steel producing country in the world. This is followed by India and Japan.

 Global Transit handles the distribution of Steel Rebar in African countries and supplies Granulated Blast Furnace Slag to Bangladesh, UAE, and South America.
