Dniprovskyi Iron and Steel Works invested $4 million in a new casting stand for the continuous casting machine No. 2.
In 2016–2019, Dniprovskyi Iron and Steel Works invested ₴1.5 billion in environmental projects.
In October 2019, due to a crisis on the markets, Dniprovskyi Iron and Steel Works postponed for a month the launch of facilities previously stopped for repair: the blast furnace No. 9 and the blast furnace No. 12 in the blast furnace shop, as well as the BOF No. 1 and the continuous casting machine No. 3 in the BOF shop.
DMK sold its blast-furnaces to Dniprovskyi Coke Plant (Metinvest Holding), according to the media.
DMK plans to build new blast furnace till 2021, according to the company management.
Funds were allocated for developing design specifications and estimates for the environmental project “Reconstruction of final gas purification systems for sintering zones of the sintering shop.” The project is scheduled to be implemented in 2019–2021.
Waste heat boilers (WHBs) of two BOFs were overhauled, and new gas purification systems were installed. As a result, SPM emissions were reduced from 142 gram/cubic meter to 50 gram/cubic meter.
Dniprovskyi Iron and Steel Works plans to launch six new types of products, including wire rods for ropes and welding wire, rolled rebar of six standard sizes, and continuous casting billet of SG2 steel.
