In situ observation of the solidification of high-carbon steel (4 wt pct C) through decarburization has been carried out as a feasibility study into reducing high-power usage and high CO2 production involved in steel making. Decarburization has been carried out under both air and pure N2 atmospheres at temperatures of 1573 K and 1673 K (1300 °C and 1400 °C). A solidified shell of around 500 μm was formed with carbon concentrations reduced down to 1 pct in as short as 18 seconds.
