South Africa has a proud history in the production of both mild steel and stainless steel with production facilities in Gauteng, Kwazulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, the Eastern and Western Cape provinces. At these facilities steel is produced from scrap or from ore via ironmaking facilities. The Center for Iron and Steelmaking Research at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA has a proud history on iron and steelmaking. Collaboration between CMU and the South African iron and steel industry includes a school on steelmaking presented by Prof. Richard Fruehan in Vanderbijlpark in 1996.
