Workers removing molten iron
Workers remove molten iron from a pilot scale facility at Boston Metal in Woburn, Massachusetts, a U.S. National Science Foundation-supported startup. The company is developing a new method to produce cleaner, cheaper, greener steel and stainless steel that focuses on the production of iron and ferrochromium, which are the basis of many high-performance steels.
