Apparent coke consumption is estimated to have fallen by 36% year-on-year in Poland.
The source suggests that ArcelorMittal Poland, one of the world's steel producers, will shut down the coke oven at its Krakow plant.
Low demand for coke and the ratio of the price of coke to the price of coke play a big role in this decision.
Until the end of the year, all employees of the coke plant will continue to work to prepare the coke oven for safe closure. During this period, the company, together with social partners, will help to provide employment for the department's employees.
