A few months ago, I had the opportunity to visit a steel mill and this was one of the most impressive things I have seen. In this picture, we see some giant electrodes plunging down a furnace containing nearly 40 tonnes of molten steel, using as much electricity as a medium town when then start the process to bring the pile of scrap metal to 1200 degrees Celsius. A sight to behold.
