Back Ben's Plan

For more jobs, a better place to live, and a new vision for Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool.

Bringing Steelmaking back to Teesside

If re-elected I will bring steelmaking back to Teesside. I have a plan to create a steelmaking facility, in Teesside, that will produce millions of tonnes of steel every year. It will utilise modern technologies making us competitive in a global steel industry. I have a plan for an electric arc furnace to the region, which will be powered by our new green energy. This will future proof the industry in Teesside in a world where we must cut carbon emissions and use innovation and technology to produce the best and greenest steel known to man.
