Nucor to Restart DRI Plant

Nucor Corp., Charlotte, N.C., will resume operations at its direct reduced iron plant in Louisiana by the end of the month. The company temporarily suspended production late last year for planned maintenance and decided not to resume production at that time based on market conditions.

Nucor executives say their raw materials strategy is built on flexibility, and they constantly evaluate the market for the lowest cost raw material inputs at the quality levels customers need. Changes in the raw materials market led to the restart of DRI production, they say, though they did not specify what changes triggered the decision.
