Galati investments bring dividends


ArcelorMittal Galati has invested more than €82 million to improve its environmental performance

Since 2011, more than €82 million has been invested to revamp BF5 and improve the overall environmental performance of the ArcelorMittal Galati (Romania) plant. In 2013, this investment resulted in a reduction in CO2-eq emissions of over 244 kg/tonne of liquid steel – a total saving of 465,000 tonnes of CO2-eq. That’s theequivalent of taking 180,000 cars off the road which is almost the same number of vehicles in Galati and nearby counties.

The next step is to install a Bell Less Top® Charging System and a profile-meter to improve processes. These improvements will result in an additional reduction in CO2-eq emissions of 75,400 tonnes per year.
