Taking into consideration the complexity of the traditional iron and steel elaborating methods that demand the existence of ore preparation plants, cookery, etc. moreover the deficit of coking coals and iron scrap it is necessary to search new possibilities of modifying the existent technologies or replacing them by new methods. One option regarding this way represents the use of sponge iron obtained by direct reduction of iron ores or prepared into the iron and steel elaborating process.Considering the high materials and energy consumption and environment pollution in the traditional iron and steel elaborating methods our paper’s aim is to analyze the opportunity and the possibilities of obtaining the iron and steel by non-conventional technologies.Our paper presents the results obtained from direct reducing of iron ores and our conclusions resulted from statistic analysis of obtained data by correlating the initial characteristics of the ores and qualitative characteristics of the pre-reduced product.
