Background

The electric arc furnace at ArcelorMittal Zenica operates scrap-based production.[2]

In 2012, people in Zenica protested against ArcelorMittal Zenica for air quality pollution.[3]

In 2017, The Guardian reported that ArcelorMittal Zenica was operating without valid permits.[4] ArcelorMittal purchased the plant in 2004 with the agreement to make "all appropriate investment in the protection of the environment." According to The Guardian report, ArcelorMittal Zenica had still not made these promised improvements by 2017.[4]

According to historic documents, the plant's EAF hasn't been used for crude steel production for some time, but capacity remains available.[5]
