ArcelorMittal Asturias owns a Coke Plant in Asturias which was cold idled and was revamped and put back in operation. The existing facility used to work with 3 ETP’s which were not possible to reuse due to their bad condition. The ENVIROTHERM Electrostatic Tar Precipitator (ETP) was chosen as the best available technology to remove the tar content from coke oven gas with 99.95 % efficiency.
