Background

The ArcelorMittal Warszawa steel plant began operating in 1957, under the company Huta. At the Warszawa plant's peak in the 70s, around 10,000 people were employed at the site. In the 1980s, a housing complex was built near the plant to house the plant's employees.[1] In 1992, Huta was bought and merged into the Lucchini Group, and in 2005, the Huta-Lucchini company was bought by ArcelorMittal, at which point the ownership of the Warszawa plant transferred to ArcelorMittal.[2]

In 2013, the plant's operations were temporarily suspended from mid-January to mid-February after a series of VAT (tax) frauds on the import of rebars into Poland.[3]

According to the Architecture & Spatial Planning Department of the City of Warsaw, the plant was historically a major contributor to deteriorating local air quality. Before 1990, the Warszawa plant used hard coal to produce its gases, going through around 200,000 tonnes of coal each year.[1]
