US awards record $6 bln to back industrial emissions reduction projects.

The U.S. Energy Department on Monday announced $6 billion in federal funding to subsidize 33 industrial projects in 20 states to cut carbon emissions, saying the investment would support well-paying union jobs and boost U.S. competitiveness.
Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm will unveil the awards during a visit to a Cleveland-Cliffs Steel Corp (CLF.N), opens new tab facility in Middletown, Ohio, which will receive up to $500 million to install two new electric arc furnaces and hydrogen-based technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1 million tons.

                    This is a huge amount commited to finance reducing industrial emissions in the United States. We can only hope the funds are well utilised and that most importantly, we start seeing results of this resource allocation. It will also greatly help in union jobs keeping and maintain the country's market competitiveness, overall a good deal.
