New development of steelmaking process

The steelmaking process has an extremely important role in supporting the development of an eco-friendly society and it becomes to an age of technical innovation. For the research and development of this field, we have to consider the following points on four different scales: Giga scale = Consider the global impact of the extraction process, Mega scale = Enhance the performance of reactors, Micro scale = Identify the controlling factors of the reaction rate and Nano scale = Control the mass transfer of molecules. At Kitamura laboratory, the researches based on the above four points are being carried out in the field of steelmaking, which is a core process used to produce high-quality steel.
