THE IRON AND STEEL INDUSTRY IN THE CEC
The report evaluates the energy consumption of the European iron and steel industry, absorbing about 8 % of the energy consumed in the Community. It highlights the fact that there are numerous possibilities of saving energy (by 1990 10-15 % of 1979 consumption, i.e. 7.5-11.5 million toe) and of boosting the role of coal. The investment required to achieve the overall objective of a 15 % saving is estimated at around 3 100 ECU; the report lists some of the main investment projects. It concludes that if the Community steelmaking industry takes decisive action on energy, there is every likelihood that it will become competitive again and that it will gain considerable ground on its major rivals.
