4 2 Materials Used to make Steel 2.1 Iron Ore Composition Iron very rarely occurs in the earth's surface as a metal. It is widely distributed, combined with oxygen as iron oxides.Chapter-3. Raw Materials Used in Steel Plant | Iron Ore,,RAW MATERIALS USED IN STEEL PLANT. 3.1. INTRODUCTIONThe raw materials required for the production of iron and steel can be grouped as follows: Ferrous materials (Iron ores, Scrap). Fuels and reducing agents (Coke, coal, oil, gas) Fluxes (Lime, Alloying agents)How iron is made - material, manufacture, making, history,,The raw materials used to produce pig iron in a blast furnace are iron ore, coke, sinter, and limestone. Iron ores are mainly iron oxides and include magnetite, hematite, limonite, and many other rocks.
