    Some existing work on optimizing the operational cost of the primary end of an integrated steel plant containing two blast furnaces utilizing both pellets and sinters, an electric furnace and a basic oxygen furnace was further advanced using a multi-objective genetic algorithm, along with a Nash equilibrium analysis. The new formulation was able to improve the earlier results very significantly, suggesting the efficacy of the multi-objective approach over the more conventional single objective genetic algorithms.
