ArcelorMittal to Idle Indiana Blast Furnace
According to the newspaper, the furnace is to be idled later this month.
"The furnace will be taken down in a safe and orderly fashion and preserved to maintain our capacity for when customer demand merits the necessary capital investments for a new campaign," ArcelorMittal spokesman Bill Steers told the newspaper.
The facility’s two other blast furnaces, No. 7 at Indiana Harbor East and No. 4 at Indiana Harbor West, will continue operation.
