Online news sources say construction was started last November but was shut down shortly thereafter due to the weather and pandemic. They say they are committed to re- starting the project this spring with a completion date of 2022. https://www.starbeacon.com/news/local_news/construction-on-petmins-ashtabula-facility-begins/article_99313771-8396-52f7-916f-3bc179521a50.html

In related news, Stelco's new pig iron caster at Nanticoke was supposed to be operating by the end of 2020. No confirmation on that however.

 Post subject: Ashtabula Pig Iron Plant

A couple of years ago, there was talk of a South African company wanting to build a pig iron plant in Ashtabula. Has there been recent developments in regards to the project?
