Extracting iron from iron ore using a Blast Furnace. The common ores of iron are both iron oxides, and these can be reduced to iron by heating them with carbon in the form of coke. Coke is produced by heating coal in the absence of air. Coke is cheap and provides both the reducing agent for the reaction and also the heat source.

The purpose of a blast furnace is to chemically reduce and physically convert iron oxides into liquid iron called "hot metal". The blast furnace is a huge, steel stack lined with refractory brick, where iron ore, coke and limestone are dumped into the top, and preheated air is blown into the bottom.

Blast furnaces are similar to furnaces, but can smelt only ore blocks and tools/armor made of iron, gold or chainmail. Once an item and a fuel are placed into the blast furnace, the block state changes to lit and the item is smelted twice as fast as a regular furnace. Fuel is also used at double the rate of regular furnaces, so the number of items smelted per fuel stays the same.

Pig Iron Production - Blast Furnace Route; More than 1.1 billion tonnes of blast furnace iron was produced globally in 2016. Blast furnace economics are such that larger units have lower unit production costs, hence there has been a trend to bigger and bigger furnaces. Modern blast furnaces produce more than 10,000 tonnes per day.
