Global: R&D


In 2014, researchers in our global R&D division worked on 13 projects to develop ways of reducing air emissions from our operations, including a promising new technology for sinter plants. More than 70 process improvements were introduced at our plants over the year to reduce pollution, and more than 80 are expected in 2015. For example, we launched an initiative to improve the efficiency of de-dusting systems by revamping certain mechanical and electrical components used in the steelmaking process.
