OSE Case

  • OSE's case would be to produce steel from direct reduction, which is more efficient and lower temperature than a blast furnace. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_reduced_iron
  • Iron mining in the USA - [1]
  • Chromium mining (for stainless steel) - Chromite (FeCrO) is reduced to Ferrochrome (FeCr) via carbothermic reduction. Chromite in Oregon, Montana, California - [2]
