Industrial ProductionSee also: Iron ore
The production of iron or steel is a process containing two main stages, unless the desired product is cast iron. The first stage is to produce pig iron in a blast furnace. Alternatively, it may be directly reduced. The second is to make wrought iron or steel from pig iron by a further process.
For a few limited purposes like electromagnet cores, pure iron is produced by electrolysis of a ferrous sulfate solution
