A sustainable steel industry
It states that the proposed rebuilding of the blast furnace at the Port Talbot site will ensure the continuation of a sustainable steel industry in Wales and the continuity of long-term job security.

It states that: "It is likely therefore that the proposed development will not produce noise levels as high as those already emitted."
Risk of accidents
The report also tackles the risk of accidents involved with the blast furnace and states: "The design of the new blast furnace incorporates new technology and represents a significant overall risk reduction from the current furnace."
