Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.

Pig iron bars can be created at a smelter by a dwarf with the furnace operating labor activated.

The recipe for pig iron is: one iron bar, one flux material and one fuel create one pig iron bar. Note that this fuel is part of the reaction.You will need another item of fuel (coke or charcoal, but not wood) to power the smelter unless you're using a magma smelter.

Pig iron is used solely as a component in the manufacture of steel and cannot be used for any other purpose other than buildings and constructions allowed by all types of bars. Dwarves who like pig iron may be happier in a room whose floors and walls are made of it, but otherwise there is little point in keeping spare pig iron bars (aside from strange moods).
