* In December 2012, the Company announced the long-term idling of the liquid phase at the Florange site in France. Footprint analysis shown above includes two blast furnaces in Florange.

** The 2016 EAF footprint has 3 EAF's less as compared to 2015: 2 EAF's in Point Lisas (Trinidad) which had zero production during 2016, and 1 EAF in Georgetown (USA) following of the closure of the plant in 2015.

During 2016 several further portfolio adjustments were made:

  • On April 4, 2016, ArcelorMittal completed the sale of US LaPlace and Vinton Long Carbon facilities to an affiliate of Black Diamond Capital Management (‘Black Diamond’)
  • On September 30, 2016, ArcelorMittal completed the sale of its wholly owned subsidiary ArcelorMittal Zaragoza in Spain to Megasa Siderúrgica S.L.

The number of EAF presented above include these operations: 2 EAF's in Vinton, 1 EAF in LaPlace and 1 EAF in Zaragoza. Excluding these divestments the total number of EAFs at the end of 2016 would be 32.
