Camp Hill-based Harsco Corps’ Environmental division has renewed its contract with the United Kingdom’s largest steel producer for five years to support reducing carbon from its steel production operations.
Harsco Corp., which provides environmental solutions for industrial and specialty by-products, said Wednesday the contract with Tata Steet at the Port Talbot steelworks in the United Kingdom (UK) began July 1.
Harsco Environmental said it has been providing services, including metal recovery, scrap processing, slag handling and BOS (Basic Oxygen Steelmaking) services at Port Talbot for more than 40 years.
With an annual UK steel production of more than 3 million tons, Tata Steel supplies steel products to customers throughout the UK, mainland Europe and beyond.
Over the next five years, Harsco Environmental will support Tata Steel’s transformation project to decarbonize its operations. Tata Steel’s UK business has an ambition to achieve CO2 neutral steel making by 2045 and achieving at least a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030, Harsco said.
Harsco will continue to work with Tata Steel on several continuous improvement initiatives and collaborate on the ongoing transformation project.
“This extension attests to Harsco Environmental’s record of excellent service with Tata Steel’s Port Talbot steelworks,” said Harsco Environmental COO Russ Mitchell. “We look forward to strengthening this partnership as Tata Steel works toward its decarbonization goals and improvement initiatives.”
