Dominican Republic’s only steel mill (METALDOM) swapped fuel oil for natural gas to fire its furnace, at a cost of more than US$2 million.
The company said the conversion seeks to reduce the effect of greenhouse gases and improve air in quality in the capital, responding to Metaldom’s sustainability policy developed several years ago.
Plant executive vice president Eduardo Gisbert said the intention is to make Metaldom one of the most efficient companies with low environmental impact levels and reveals the importance for the industry’s change to natural gas.
“Our company wants to improve its development from a perspective of responsibility with our employees as well as with the community and the environment, for which Metaldom is making the necessary changes in the matter of energy, safety, cleanliness, among others,” the executive added.
