    The classical route of iron and steel production based on agglomeration-coke-blast furnace-BOF paradigm has served very well the global economy in the last several hundred years and continues to be a dominant one in the beginning of 21st century. However at the present new conditions where environment protection and sustainability have become a necessary requirement for any technology, the drawbacks of this route such as CO2 contamination, environmental pollution and high specific energy consumption have surfaced.
    Several initiatives have undertaken to reduce CO2 emission from iron and steel industry. They include ULCOS European program that aims to decrease by 50% the CO2 emitted per ton of steel by 2050 and COURSE-50 Japanese program that aims to fully prevent CO2 emission in the atmosphere during metal production processes. Unfortunately, as of now, these goals have not been achieved and more work is needed. The reason for this is the fact that despite numerous modernization during the years in the industry there is a physical limit on specific carbon consumption as a reductant and energy supplier which might raise the question if this classical technology has no more potential of development in this direction.
    One alternative of the above is the development of radically new, disruptive, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly technologies that exclude agglomeration, coke production and blast-furnace. This is because attempts to solve iron and steel environmental and energy problems based on existing processes without changing its core essence might give no good results.
    In this framework, a radically new electrometallurgical iron and steel making technology is presented in this paper. This technology named ORIEN, developed, tested and patented has the potential to solve the environmental problems of the iron and steel industry and assures energy saving, cost reduction and increase of the steel quality. The new electrometallurgical complexes like ORIEN may become a basis of a new paradigm shift in iron and steel production.
