Total raw steel production for the month of June was 7,487,972 net tons, with 5,182,147 tons produced by electric arc furnaces (EAF) and 2,305,825 tons produced by blast furnaces. June raw steel production was 118,921 tons or 1.6 percent lower than the previous month, and 34,195 tons or 0.5 percent lower than the same month last year, reports the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) in Washington. AISI's monthly estimates are different than the weekly estimates we report; the monthly estimates are based on over 75 percent of the domestic mills reporting versus only 50 percent reporting for the weekly estimates.
