Steel producers in Poland will spend over PLN 2 billion over the next three years on reducing industrial emissions in line with EU requirements, according to the Polish Steel Association.

Three-quarters of the sum will be footed by the Polish unit of steel production giant ArcelorMittal, the PAP news agency reported.
Polish industry insiders say that complying with EU directives will weaken the competitiveness of the European steel industry on the global market.
"This is due to the fact that producers from China, Korea, India, Russia and Ukraine are not obliged to carry out similar projects," Stefan Dzienniak, head of the Polish Steel Association, told the PAP agency. (pk)
