EU approves Belgian state aid to ArcelorMittal for decarbonising production

The European Commission on Thursday said it had approved 280 million euros ($308 million) in state aid granted by Belgium to steel maker ArcelorMittal (MT.LU) to help it decarbonise its steel production.
The aid will support the construction of a direct reduction iron plant, which together with a new electric arc furnace will replace one of two existing blast furnaces. The plant, which is expected to be operational by 2026, will ultimately be operated using renewable hydrogen.
