BusinessLine reported tat Liberty House has evinced interest in collaborating with Tata Steel for its plant at Port Talbot. GFG Alliance Chairman Mr Sanjeev Gupta told BusinessLine that"We are always open to any kind of association with Tatas. We have a long and mutually productive history with them, we consider them one of the best groups in the world. In 2016, we wanted to turn the polluting and inefficient Port Talbot blast furnaces using imported iron ore and coal to recycled Green steel using domestically available scrap powered by renewable energy. So today when I hear of talks of EAFs in Port Talbot it is a huge vindication of our model which everyone sneered at in the past.”

GFG Group has long been an advocate for recycled Green steel in the UK and indeed this was the Group plan for Port Talbot plant while bidding for it in 2016. Tata Steel is now exploring the option of converting the blast furnace at the plant into electric arc furnace as part of its plans to drive efficiency.
