JSW Steel will soon put its subsidiary in Italy on the block on as many efforts by the company to revive the business have failed amid rising raw material cost and pressure mounting to make fresh investment to cut emissions. JSW Steel had acquired the second largest steel plant at Aferpi for Rs 451 crore from Algeria-headquartered Cevital in 2018. Having lost the battle with Arcelor Mittal then for acquiring a steel plant Ilva SpA, JSW Steel was then very bullish about revival of the stressed Aferpi. However, the plant could not be turned around despite huge investment to upgrade it and cut-down on cost. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has made matters worse by pushing up the cost all around. The Italian unit has reported an EBITDA loss of Euro 6.8 million in December quarter against EBITDA of Euro 6.1 million in September quarter due to certain one-time write-offs and impairment charges.
