Evolution of the steel industry in the Arab World: the third AISU symposium (Arab Iron and Steel Union) on the electric arc furnace
After presentation of the historical background, the present structure of the Arab steel industry is described and its main characteristics discussed: insufficient domestic steel production, based on hot metal, scrap and mainly prereduced iron, high imports of semi-products, important development of the use of electric arc furnaces. Indications are then given on the rapid evolution of the steel industry in Egypt, Morroco and Saudi-Arabia, and on new, modern and larger capacity installations, in particular electric arc furnaces and rolling mills.
