 WEIRTON, USINOR, NIPPON ANNOUNCE JOINT STEEL RECYCLING EFFORT
 WEIRTON, W.Va., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Three of the world's major tin plate producers, Sollac Division of Usinor Sacilor of Europe, Nippon Steel Corporation of Japan and Weirton Steel Corporation (NYSE: WS) of the United States, today jointly announced a collaborative effort aimed at maximizing the recycling of steel packaging.
 The effort intends to consider the various methods of separating steel cans from the refuse stream and recycling them back into the steelmaking process.
 The three companies also have reached an agreement in principle to jointly address the development of a lighter weight steel can intended to significantly increase the competitiveness of the two-piece steel beer and soft drink can.
 The trilateral effort is headed by Pierre Francois Milleron, executive vice president, Sollac; Takashi Asamura, director, Sheet Coil Technical Division, Nippon; and James B. Bruhn, vice president, Tin Mill Product Sales & Marketing, Weirton.
 Bruhn said he is "very optimistic about the potential successes of this cooperative venture. The exchange will help expand steel can recycling in communities across the world, enhancing the global environment. Undoubtedly, the excellent progress which has been made in the U.S. by the Steel Can Recycling Institute and its member producers will be furthered by these efforts."
