Background

The JFE East Japan Works (Keihin) steel plant began operating in 1971.[1] Nippon Kokan (NKK) established the first steel mill on this site in 1912. In 1971 the mill facilities were completely rebuilt on a manmade island.[2][3]

In 2020, JFE Steel announced that it was planning to shut down its second blast furnace by March 2024, and its upstream processes by 2023.[4]
