U.S. Steel to Build 4 New Coke Substitute Plants in Indiana


The State of Indiana’s Department of Environmental Management gave the permit to U.S. Steel to commence construction of the first 2 of 4 plants that U.S. Steel wants to build in Indiana to produce a coke substitute, designed to produce cheaper, synthetic coal that will be burned as a fuel in the company’s huge blast furnaces used to make steel in Gary, Indiana. The final approval will come from the federal government, expected at the end of this month.

The good news is that it's going to bring around 500 new construction jobs to the area, which is good for the economy. However, lets hope that extra attention is devoted to worker safety since construction and steel mills are two of the most dangerous occupations in the country.
