Update to Community Liaison Committee

Between now and mid-May, ArcelorMittal Dofasco will be conducting maintenance work in our steelmaking operations. As a result, we may experience an excess of hot metal (liquid iron) from our blast furnace operations. Our Ironmaking teams will reduce production rates as much as possible to minimize excess hot metal inventory (while maintaining integrity of the furnaces).  Coffin beds will also be proactively maintained to reduce the risk and severity of any potential emissions if coffining hot metal is required.  The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change is aware of the work we have underway, and our plans and processes to manage the circumstances.
