One of the many processing plants at the vast abandoned wasteland on the Carsid steelworks site in the Belgian city that is Charleroi.
The Coal Injection Plant on the Carsid site was an addition to the blast furnace process in the early 1990's.
The pulverised coal injection process was developed in the 19th century but wasn't implemented to the steel making process until the 1970's. With the rising costs of high grade coke the process enables the use of lower quality coke without affecting quality to the final product and makes the process more efficient.
The blast furnace and the coal injection plant closed in 2008. The blast furnace is now being dismantled but some parts of the site are still active to this day.
