U.S. Steel updates its metallics strategy

June 29, 2022 -  U.S. Steel Corp. plans to supply domestic iron ore feedstock to its growing number of electric arc furnaces. It will break ground this autumn at either Keetac or Minntac ore mining sites, to construct a system dedicated to producing direct reduction-grade pellets. This $150 million investment will enable one of the company’s existing pelletizing plants to create DR-grade pellets and maintain the optionality to continue producing blast furnace-grade pellets.

DR-grade pellets are a critical feedstock for ironmaking in a direct reduced iron (DRI) or hot briquetted iron (HBI) process that ultimately supplies EAF steelmaking. Upon completion, the Company would be able to sell the new pellets to third-party DRI/HBI producers or use them to feed a potential future DRI or HBI facility of its own. 
The DR-grade pellets \ would be a new product line for U.S. Steel.
Separately, U.S. Steel signed a non-binding letter of intent with SunCoke Energy Inc., a raw material processing and handling company, setting forth the preliminary terms for a potential arrangement under which SunCoke would acquire the two blast furnaces at Granite City Works and build a 2-million-ton granulated pig iron production facility. Subsequently, SunCoke would supply U.S. Steel access to 100 percent of the pig iron production for the next 10 years.
U.S. Steel intends to supply the needed iron ore to be used to produce the pig iron from its own mines. This pig iron is expected to supply U.S. Steel’s EAF melt shops.
SunCoke would lead efforts in building the capacity at Granite City’s blast furnaces. This project is expected to take at least two years to complete. SunCoke has operated coke ovens at Granite City Works since 2009.

Gainesville, GA (June 22, 2022) For many years, The Harris Products Group has provided financial support for a non-profit just down the street from its Gainesville, Georgia, facility. The organization, Sisu, brings educational, therapeutic, nursing and support services to children with special needs in 16 counties in northeast Georgia. Sisu’s integrated learning environment allows children from 6 weeks to 6 years with special needs to learn and interact alongside their typically developing peers.

This spring, Harris donated $25,000, bringing its total support over the years to more than $285,000. These donations have helped build new classrooms, improved playgrounds and assisted with Sisu’s administrative costs. 

“At Harris, we’re proud to continue our annual charity contribution to Sisu, our friend and neighbor,” said Melissa Nolan, Human Resources Manager at Harris.Over the years, many of our employees have had children enrolled at Sisu and we are happy to be able to support them both financially and as a good neighbor.

Sisu is a Finnish concept that relates to inner determination, persistence, grit, bravery, resilience, hardiness and indomitable spirit. This is the mindset that Sisu encourages to help these children reach beyond perceived capabilities and take action against all odds.

More information about Sisu can be found at mysisu.org.
