Canadian steel maer Algoma Steel celebrated the first arc at its second Ladle Metallurgy Facility on 22 February 2021. The new 2.1 million ton ladle metallurgy furnace augments the existing capacity of No 1 LMF to deliver quality, precision grades, and enhances productivity to meet strong market demand. Algoma SteeCEO Mr Michael McQuade said “No 2 LMF is a key component of our sustainability transformation. When combined with upgrades to our Plate Mill, our Direct Strip Production Complex and the continual critical review of every aspect of our cost structure, these initiatives are vital to sustaining our competitive position as an advanced manufacturer in Canada. Canadian steel has the smallest carbon footprint of any steel used in Canadian manufacturing today, and these investments will help ensure a strong, reliable supply of the grades of steel we need to build back our economy."
