Ferro alloys, Calcium carbide, Aluminium and Calcium-silicon alloys, Iron and steel are some of the important metallurgical products of electric arc furnaces (EAF). Processing of ilmenite in EAF for producing synthetic rutile and pig iron seems to be the future trend in titanium dioxide pigment industries as this process ensures a cleaner technology. EAFs are also being employed to vitrify a variety of wastes from mineral and metallurgical industries, as such a practice helps in recovery of metal values and makes disposal problems easier. Electrothermal processes are highly energy intensive and hence recent studies in this area pertain mainly to lowering the manufacturing cost with the development of ultra high furnaces and also D.C. and plasma arc furnaces
