British Steel plans for commissioning a new high-technology £10 million benzole plant at its Scunthorpe works.
The new plant, which will bring significant safety and environmental benefits, will use state-of-the-art technology to transform benzole gases released during the coke-making process into a liquid product that can then be used in the chemical industry.
The £10 million plant has just been successfully built and will replace the current benzole operation that services the coke ovens.
British Steel’s manufacturing director Dave Nicol said: “Commissioning the new benzole plant represents a significant investment for us. “The new operation uses the very latest technology and will provide British Steel with a highly efficient plant, that not only improves process safety but brings significant environmental benefits.
|Estimated Cost||£10 Million|
