Corus cuts Port Talbot’s carbon emissions

Steel company Corus has invested £60m in improving the energy efficiency of its Port Talbot site. The firm’s chief executive warned that tighter EU climate measures threaten the steel industry’s future

Corus has unveiled a £60m energy saving project at its Port Talbot site in South Wales which will cut its carbon emissions by 240,000 tonnes per year.

The company, owned by India’s Tata Steel since 2007, produces five million tonnes of steel a year and employs 3,500 people at the site.

The project will reduce the Port Talbot site’s annual carbon emissions by 3% and Tata Steel Europe’s emissions by 1%. It will also reduce particulate matter emissions by 40t/yr – some 2.5% of the site’s emissions.
