SC Rejects JSPL Plea to Sell Illegally Extracted Iron Ore from Sarda Mines

FE reported that Supreme Court has refused to allow Jindal Steel & Power to sell and transport 12 million tonne of illegally extracted iron ore worth INR 2,000 crore from Sarda mines in Odisha. A Bench led by Justice S Abdul Nazeer while refusing interim relief said “Sarda is mined illegally. How can we allow it…just because its sold to you.”

The court was hearing a case by the Odisha government seeking to bar JSPL from accessing the extracted iron ore in Keonjhar mine in Odisha which the company claims was mined before the state government imposed a ban on mining. JSPL opposed sale of iron ore by banks, saying the iron ore belonged to it and it should be allowed to consume and transport it from the current location, which is Sarda Mines.

However, banks opposed JSPL’s plea, saying they have a statutory charge over the same iron ore.

11,15 -0,16 (-1,37%)

ESSEN (AFN) - Het Duitse Thyssenkrupp wil de winstgevendheid bij zijn staaldivisie de komende jaren opvoeren. Dat doet het bedrijf door kosten te besparen via banenreducties en door meer te verkopen aan de auto-industrie. Dat meldde persbureau Reuters, dat interne documenten inzag.

Thyssenkrupp zag eerder dit jaar nog een fusie van de Europese staalactiviteiten met die van Tata Steel stuklopen door bezwaren van de Europese Commissie. Nu moet het onderdeel de grootste winstmotor gaan worden bij de onderneming uit Essen, aldus de documenten. Het zou de bedoeling zijn om de brutowinst bij staal in de komende jaren met wel 600 miljoen euro op te voeren.

Bij de staaltak gaan 1200 banen verloren, terwijl er meer werk gemaakt wordt van leveringen aan de autosector. Ook bekijkt Thyssenkrupp de opties voor de onderdelen Heavy Plate en Electrical Steel. Deze kunnen worden geherstructureerd of verkocht, aldus Reuters.

Het bedrijf is momenteel bezig met een verkoop of beursnotering van zijn liftendivisie.

ArcelorMittal 04 dec
15,33 0,00 (0,00%)

ROME (AFN) - Staalconcern ArcelorMittal is van plan om flink in te grijpen in de Ilva-staalfabriek in het Italiaanse Tarente. Dat valt op te maken uit een voorlopig voorstel dat is voorgelegd aan ambtenaren en vakbondsmedewerkers. Persbureau Bloomberg heeft de plannen ingezien.

Arcelor wil onder meer de productiecapaciteit verminderen tot 6 miljoen ton per jaar in 2021. Verder zullen er tot 2023 in totaal 4700 banen worden geschrapt. De geplande investeringen worden iets verminderd. Naar verluidt hebben de vakbondsmedewerkers die aanwezig waren bij de presentatie de plannen al verworpen.

Het staalconcern kocht de Ilva-fabriek in Zuid-Italië, waar duizenden mensen werken, vorig jaar. De grootste staalfabriek van Europa is al decennialang verwikkeld in schandalen wegens vervuiling van de omgeving en gezondheidsklachten bij omwonenden.

(ABM FN-Dow Jones) ArcelorMittal overweegt om richting 2023 4.700 arbeidsplaatsen te schrappen bij zijn staalfabriek in het Italiaanse Taranto. Dit schreef persbureau Bloomberg donderdag, nadat het een conceptvoorstel had ingezien.

Het plan is verder om de productiecapaciteit te verlagen naar 6 miljoen ton in 2021. Hiervoor gold eerder een doelstelling van 8 miljoen ton.

Ook zullen de investeringen wat worden teruggebracht, terwijl geïnvesteerd wordt in milieuzaken.

Vorige maand liet de staalgigant nog doorschemeren van de sterk vervuilende Italiaanse fabriek af te willen. De Italiaanse regering reageerde verbolgen en beschuldigde ArcelorMittal vervolgens van contractbeuk, gelet op de afspraken die zijn gemaakt toen ArcelorMittal de fabriek vorig jaar overnam.

Thyssenkrupp Outlines Steel Unit Overhaul Plan

Reuters reported that Thyssenkrupp now plans to transform the business into its biggest profit engine. It sent a memo to staff saying that it aims to boost earnings before interest and tax at Steel Europe by an average of up to EUR 600 million over the coming years, helped by job cuts and selling more to the autos industry, which would make it the backbone of the conglomerate’s operations following an expected sale or listing of its elevator division. The letter said “Our plan is a clear forward strategy to strengthen Thyssenkrupp Steel’s long-term competitiveness and viability. We cannot simply carry on as before, unless we accept missing the boat to the future.”

The letter said “Steel Europe will cut up to 1,000 jobs in administration and an additional 200 staff would be affected in its operating business. Steel Europe’s Heavy Plate and Electrical Steel businesses would either be restructured, sold or wound down, the letter added, with decisions expected in the coming months.”

Thyssenkrupp also said it planned to increase steel shipments to an average 11.5 million tonnes a year as compared to 11 million tonnes in 2018.

SSAB Initiates Study in Finland for Fossil Free Steel

In line with the HYBRIT project, SSAB is taking the next step for a completely fossil-free steel value chain. In partnership with Gasum, Neste and St1, SSAB is initiating an Energy4HYBRIT prefeasibility study supported by Business Finland to investigate the use of fossil-free energy sources, primarily biomaterial side-streams, to replace fossil fuels in certain steelmaking processes, for example rolling processes. The Raahe mill will act as SSAB’s pilot. SSAB Raahe will act as SSAB’s pilot works. The University of Oulu and VTT will study and model all the energy flows at the works. The energy companies involved in the prefeasibility study are looking into the use and availability of alternative energy sources.. The study will be finished before June 2020.

The HYBRIT initiative, owned by SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall, aims to replace the coke used in iron ore-based steelmaking with hydrogen. Ironmaking accounts for around 90% of SSAB’s carbon dioxide emissions. The new process would emit water instead of carbon dioxide. Laboratory tests and a prefeasibility study have shown that the process works and the pilot plant being built in Luleå, Sweden will be completed in 2020. The aim of the initiative is an ambitious one and will potentially reduce Sweden’s carbon dioxide emissions by 10% and Finland’s by 7%.

Tata Steel stoot veel meer sinter-stof uit dan toegestaan

De sinterfabriek van Tata Steel IJmuiden stoot meer stof uit dan mag van de vergunning. Uit onderzoek is gebleken dat de uitstoot van het stof, dat zware metalen bevat, door de zogenoemde sinterkoelers 1,5 tot 2 keer groter is dan vergund. Dat stelt de provincie Noord-Holland donderdag. Tata Steel gaat een extra filter installeren waardoor die uitstoot minder wordt.

De provincie gaat onderzoeken hoe dit heeft kunnen gebeuren en hoe dit zolang onopgemerkt is gebleven. Ook gaat de toezichthouder, de Omgevingsdienst Noordzeekanaalgebied, meer vergunningen van Tata Steel vergelijken met de werkelijke situatie.

Sinter is bewerkt ijzererts, dat onder hoge temperatuur wordt gemaakt en daarna wordt gekoeld met koude lucht. Die, inmiddels verwarmde, lucht wordt voor een deel opgevangen en opnieuw gebruikt, de rest gaat naar de buitenlucht. In die luchtstroom zit stof en zware metalen zoals lood. In de huidige vergunning voor de drie sinterkoelers is opgenomen dat de uitstoot, per sinterkoeler, maximaal een kilogram per uur mag zijn.

Extra filter
Tata Steel Nederland heeft zelf de Omgevingsdienst geïnformeerd, nadat begin dit jaar uit eigen onderzoek het vermoeden was ontstaan dat meer stof wordt uitgestoten dan is vergund.

Daarbij is uit vervolgonderzoek gebleken, zo stelt de staalmaker, dat de stofemissie kan worden teruggebracht door een extra filter te installeren. De vergunningsaanvraag daarvoor is ingediend, maar het duurt waarschijnlijk minimaal vijftien maanden voordat de nieuwe installatie operationeel is, vanwege de levertijd van het filter.

Luchtkwaliteit IJmond
De gedeputeerde Leefbaarheid & Gezondheid van de provincie Noord-Holland, Adnan Tekin, zegt de hogere uitstoot te betreuren. 'Veel inwoners van de IJmond maken zich grote zorgen over het effect van stof op hun gezondheid. Het minste dat ze van ons mogen verwachten is dat we goed in kaart hebben waar het om gaat.'

In de regio wordt de luchtkwaliteit en neerslag van stof regelmatig gemeten. De extra uitstoot van sinter-stof heeft geen effect gehad op de resultaten van die metingen, stelt de provincie. Ook Tata Steel zegt dat de effecten op de omgeving buiten het bedrijfsterrein 'gering' zijn. De uitstoot bestaat voornamelijk uit grof stof waarvan het 'grootste gedeelte in de directe omgeving van de sinterfabriek neerslaat'. De concentraties blijven ruim binnen de geldende grenswaarden, schrijft de staalmaker op de website.

Er is veel onrust over de uitstoot van Tata Steel IJmuiden in de omgeving. Zes maanden geleden publiceerde het Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu (RIVM) nog een kritisch rapport over de grafietregens waarbij glinsterende stofdeeltjes achterbleven op huizen, tuinen en auto's in Wijk aan Zee. Tata Steel presenteerde daarop de 'roadmap 2030', een plan met 25 maatregelen om overlast te beperken.
