Steel is made all over the EU, primarily using the Blast Furnace - Basic Oxygen Furnace (BF-BOF) 'primary' steelmaking route and via the 'secondary' Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) route. 

There are thousands of different grades of steel produced through these processes, in a range of qualities, such as carbon non-alloy through to stainless and specialty steels for specific applications.

This map paints a picture of where this production takes place, with about half of EU countries having at least some upstream production on their territory.
