Modern Steel

Interesting promotional video on a modern American steel plant. As one might expect, it is in Mississippi and owned by Russian billionaires. And note that no iron ore or coal is involved; the feed consists entirely of scrap, and the power is electric. I was impressed by how pyrotechnic the process still is, with giant fountains of sparks, and by how few workers you can see in the plant.
