Siderurgy



Siderurgy (from Greek sideros - iron and Greek ergon or ergos - work) is a process consisting of extracting iron from iron ore by heating, first by mixing the ore with combustibles, then by separating the iron from the slag in a melting pot. By extension, it may be used to indicate industrial ironworks in general.
