After an outline of world crude steel production as well as the percentage and trend of individual steel production processes pertaining to crude steel production, the increasing importance of sponge iron in steel prod-uction is examined. At the moment, the greater part of sponge iron as a charging material is used in electric arc furnaces. The most important characteristics of sponge iron are included. Due to the low trace element content, sponge iron is particularly suitable for the production of quality steel. The nitrogen content in steel can be decr-eased from 0.020 to 0.006%
