No DRI Plant for North Star Bluescope

Written by Sandy Williams

North Star Bluescope Steel will not be building a DRI plant at its steelworks in Delta, Ohio. The company, jointly owned by Bluescope and Cargill Inc., announced that it had concluded a feasibility study on building a DRI facility and found that the “forecast risk adjusted returns are not sufficiently attractive to justify the investment.”

North Star BlueScope Steel, a producer of flat rolled steel, operates two electric arc furnaces with a total output of approximately 2 million tons of hot rolled coil annually.
