Notes and definitions

Each 'record' represents a single record of investment in a steelmaking (or related) production unit - i.e. plant and equipment such as a blast furnace or a hot strip mill. Records cover each of the plant items (production units / processes) listed above. In some cases there may be ~10 records available per facility, in other cases there might perhaps be 25 or more records per facility. The cost to purchase [excluding VAT] is Euro 15 per record (thus, 5 acid regeneration plants would cost 5 x €15 = €75). The minimum purchase price per order is Euro 45.

*: All prices above are in Euro. Prices exclude value added tax (VAT). VAT will be added for UK customers. Database records are normally sent out as Excel spreadsheets by email. Dispatch is usually within 24 hours of fund receipt.
