Well... one of those state of the art mills came from sydney. Actually I don't remember if it ended up in china or india but that's a coin toss anyhow. That was one of those most advanced electric furnaces of it's day in 1990 when it was installed along with the rail mill they stole at the same time... so yes, they have advanced mills... and it's producing rail for their own infrastructure, not us.

I'm not talking about recycled steel mills. I was reading about China producing boiler plate that is second none in a brand new state of the facility. I'm sure they probably produce some bad steel as well but for anything critical, it's fairly easy (relatively speaking) to test the steel to make sure it meets the required specs. I worked in tank shops back in the 80's that would buy cheaper spec. steel and it would be laminated and didn't come from China. China exports steel all over the world. Even Donald Trump doesn't like buying steel and glass from China but it saves him a ton of money. That's why he thinks there should be a 25% tariff on products from China so they are competing on an equal playing field.

Electric arc furnaces are where the highest quality steels are produced... It's the most controlled process they have. For making sheer tonnage... that's going to come from a basic oxygen process.
