Great to see-- it seems like this type of industrial function doesn't really have many other options for decarbonizing at the moment since electricity can't provide the levels of heat needed, so this would be a huge win for the sector

Matt, electric arc furnaces (EAFs) are plenty hot enough to make steel. Most recycled steel is made by melting scrap in EAFs.

4.8% of all global carbon emissions could be eliminated by replacing blast furnaces with EAFs powered by nuclear electricity.
