ArcelorMittal Dofasco green steel project proposes pipeline
03 Mar 2023
A proposed switch from coal to natural gas at Hamilton’s steel mills is bringing mixed reactions across the city. Industry officials say a large pipeline is needed to make that happen in order to meet demand and achieve emission targets.
In efforts to go green at the steel mills, ArcelorMittal Dofasco says it will take a large 14-kilometre natural gas pipeline through a populated area of east Hamilton to get it done. The natural gas supplier says the preferred route would begin on Highway 56 south of Rymal Road where a new station will be built. The route would then run along Upper Centennial Parkway down to Barton Street until it reaches ArcelorMittal Dofasco. But Don McLean with Hamilton 350 committee says there are environmental concerns. "We don’t have a good understanding of what the actual emissions will be from the gas their talking about using because it’s fracked gas".
