MMK Permits Approved
(WOUB) - The Ohio E-P-A has approved air and wastewater permits for New Steel International's steel mill planned for Scioto County.

M-M-K Steel wants to build the plant in Franklin Furnace.

According to a news release, during the application process the O-E-P-A worked with the company to figure out how to reduce the amount of airborne mercury which would be released.

The company then decided to add a lignite injection system designed to control mercury emissions.

The project is expected to create at least 500 jobs.
