The Cleveland-Cliffs Cleveland steel plant began operating in 1913 under the original name of Corrigan-McKinney Steel Co.[2] It was owned by LTV Corp, then bought by ArcelorMittal, then passed into the hands of Cleveland-Cliffs after ArcelorMittal was acquired by Cleveland-Cliffs in December 2020.[1]

Environmental Compliance

In 2008, advocacy group Ohio Citizen Action filed a complaint with the EPA about the blast furnace. The group claimed former owner LTV Corp. nearly doubled the blast furnace's capacity during the 1980s without installing proper environmental controls.[3]

In 2020, ArcelorMittal agreed to pay nearly $5 million to settle lawsuits which claimed that the company had violated the Clean Air Act at three separate facilities, including the Cleveland facility.[4]
