Today at Edgar Thomson Works, U. S. Steel proudly announced a more than $1 billion investment to construct a new state-of-the-art and sustainable endless casting and rolling facility.


The facility will be the first of its kind in the United States. With this new, world-class asset, Mon Valley Works will produce a full range of steel solutions for customers and optimize production of advanced high-strength steel.


Furthermore, the investment will include construction of a new cogeneration facility equipped with leading-edge emissions control systems to convert a portion of excess coke oven gas generated at Clairton Plant into electricity to power other operations throughout Mon Valley Works.


This investment represents a continuation of U. S. Steel’s century-long commitment to steelmaking in the Mon Valley. The new facility will reduce the time and energy needed to convert liquid steel into a hot-rolled coil. In turn, it will improve environmental performance, maximize energy conservation and contribute to regional air quality improvements through reductions in particulate matter and sulfur dioxide across our Mon Valley Works.
