Luxembourg-based plantmaker Paul Wurth has announced that it will supply state-of-the-art coke making technology for a new coke oven complex to be built at Taiwan’s largest steelmaker China Steel Corporation’s (CSC) Kaohsiung steel mill.

The supply agreement which includes two batteries, two sets of coke oven machines and the upstream portion of a new coke oven gas treatment plant was signed on November 24, 2020.
