The new rebar minimill for YK Steel (Korea) will integrate cutting-edge solutions to comply with highest sustainability standards in melting, reheating, and fume treatment technologies. This project is part of the growth plan of Daehan Steel, the largest shareholder of YK Steel, to become one of the largest producers of rebar in the country.
SMS group will supply the mill to the Korean steel market, facing post-pandemic recovery and focusing on eco-friendly steel plants. Thanks to cutting-edge solutions for gas purification, water treatment, low emissions, and energy efficiency, the plant complies with the highest sustainability standards in melting, reheating, and fume treatment technologies.
Based in a growing residential area in Busan, YK Steel needs to move the existing facilities to Dangjin, close to Pyeongtaek location of the existing Daehan’s plant supplied by SMS group, in order to facilitate the billet logistics and to feed both plants.
