  • The Global Village appropriate technology foundry is theorized to be 200kW strong to produce 5000 lb of steel per day from scrap.
  • It is a largely automated process
  • Begins with a metal shredder and scrap steel
  • Results in 3" ingots, 8' long. This is sufficient to make 1"x7" steel sections, sufficient for appropriate modern day thriving. That makes 4' wide sections of 1/8" plate
