According to reports, the Slovak company US Steel Kosice has relaunched blast furnace No. 3 to meet customer needs. All three blast furnaces of the company are now back in operation.
Yan Baka, a spokesman for US Steel Kosice, said they have many problems with the European steel market, but the cost of raw materials and energy, as well as carbon charges, remain high.
They could only adjust production volumes and product range in accordance with the current situation in the steel market and the needs of customers. They also paid close attention to the COVID-19 epidemic.
