Russian company starts paperwork with EPA for steel mill
(WOUB) - A Russian steel company pondering building a $1 billion steel mill in southern Ohio has asked for a permit from the state's environmental agency.

An air-emissions permit application filed with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency by a consulting firm on behalf of Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel, for a site in Haverhill, about 100 miles south of Columbus.

The details of the application, which typically outlines a company's plan to limit soot and emissions, were not released because the company asked it be kept private because it was a trade secret, the EPA said.

The application does not necessarily mean Magnitogorsk, also known as MMK, has settled on southern Ohio as the location for the plant.

But it is a sign the company is serious because the paperwork requires a filing fee.
