Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) is the most demanding steelmaking process in the industry to produce quality steel. It requires high quality products and technology to sustain reliability and competitiveness. Because of the growing demand for high-grade steel products, there is a demand for lower levels of impurities (such as phosphorus and sulphur) in the steelmaking process.

Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) steelmaking requires high-quality lime and dolime to produce high quality steel. Steelmaking is evolving to more sustainable practices, leading to a transformation to more EAF steelmaking and an evolution in the quality of input scrap and DRI. High quality lime and dolime have and will continue to play an important role in this.
