Furnaces convert ore to metal, consuming fuel.

There are two main types of furnace: Charcoal-fired furnaces with relatively short firing times, and large Petroleum-fired furnaces with much longer firing times but greater efficiency.

The most time and resource efficient CC furnace is the Gyration Cell. There are many public facilities with Gyration cells.
