17:58 EDTAKSAK Steel to ask U.S. to seek further rulings against China
AK Steel said that the Chinese Ministry of Commerce has announced its purported implementation of the recommendations and rulings of the World Trade Organization Dispute Settlement Body regarding MOFCOM's flawed investigation regarding imports of grain oriented electrical steel from the United States. In the GOES case, a WTO dispute panel found that MOFCOM's findings on injury and causation violated China's WTO obligations because, among other things, they were not based on positive evidence and an objective examination of the evidence. "AK Steel applauds the efforts of the United States Trade Representative to enforce China's WTO obligations in this dispute," said James Wainscott, CEO of AK Steel. "We are disappointed that the Government of China has chosen to disregard its WTO obligations, and we will continue to urge the U.S. Government to seek further rulings that China has not complied with the DSB's recommendations and rulings." AK Steel will also request that the U.S. Government seek WTO authorization to impose retaliatory tariffs against certain imports from China until China comes into compliance by revoking the antidumping and countervailing duty measures on GOES from the United States.

12:35 EDTAKSAK Steel to pay $1.35M and implement air pollution controls at Michigan facility
The U.S. Department of Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality announced that, under a settlement agreement with the U.S. and the state of Michigan, AK Steel will pay a civil penalty of $1.35M for past violations of the Clean Air Act at its Dearborn, Michigan facility, implement a variety of procedures to reduce future violations and install dynamic air filtration systems at the Salina Elementary and Salina Intermediate Schools across Ferney Street from the plant. The consent decree will require AK Steel to develop an environmental management system for the facility with third-party auditing every six months, annually inspect and continuously monitor the performance of the pollution control equipment at the facility’s basic oxygen furnace and implement a fugitive dust control policy to prevent large particulate emissions into the adjacent neighborhoods. Upon full implementation of the consent decree requirements, particulate matter emissions, including metal hazardous air pollutants, should be reduced by approximately 100 tons per year. The settlement was lodged with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan and is subject to a 30-day public comment period and final court approval. Reference Link
