Jiji Press reported that Japanese steel giant Nippon Steel Corp said that it has reactivated a blast furnace in Kashima in Ibaraki Prefecture in eastern Japan as steel demand for automobiles and construction machinery has recovered earlier than expected in Japan and abroad.

Nippon Steel has announced on 7 April 2020 that the banking of the No 1 blast furnace at the East Nippon Works Kashima area will be carried out from 15 April 2020. Banking is to take measures to temporarily stop blast furnace production but make it possible to restart production at a later date by stopping the air blast flow.
