Background

Chubu Steel established two 30-ton electric arc furnaces at Nagoya factory in 1958, and added one 200 ton electric furnace to the plant in 1962. The 200 ton EAF was converted to eccentric bottom tapping method (EBT) in 1990.[2]

In October 2021, Chubu Steel announced their plan to install a Ecoarc-Fit at the Nagoya factory, expected to start operations in 2023.[3][4] As of January 2024, there has been no update on the expansion plan.
