The new Canadian green steel plant will have a production capacity of 3.7 million tons of high quality molten steel from recycled scrap. A supply of engraved envelopes and an automatic scrap yard are also expected to connect the two furnaces to reduce noise and emissions.
The new plant is expected to be operational by early 2024.
