Boston Metal strives for a world with no pollution from metals production, and has invented a coal-free, emissions-free method of industrial steel production using electricity.

It’s called molten oxide electrolysis and combines transformative materials engineering and novel systems engineering with elements from industrial aluminum production, traditional blast furnaces, and arc furnaces to produce steel more efficiently, at lower costs than traditional methods, and with zero greenhouse gas emissions.
