Direct steelmaking is defined as a total continuous line for the continuous production of crude steel directly, by means of continuous reactors, from raw materials; secondary metallurgy is not included. This report presents a literature survey covering approximately 60 processes up to final steel including secondary metallurgy. For each subject there is a full report. Additionally a short presentation one page and a data summary sheet were prepared. Economical evaluations were performed on the most interesting processes up to crude steel. The feasibility of ten alternative steelmaking routes up to crude steel using as raw materials iron ore and scrap were considered.
