CLAYMONT, Del. (AP) — Delaware environmental officials say new pollution control equipment installed at a Claymont steel mill will help reduce air pollution in the area.

Officials gathered at Evraz Claymont Steel on Monday to tout the completion of the $16.75 million pollution control system.

The system is commonly referred to as a "baghouse." It nearly doubles the mill's capacity to collect and filter emissions from the steelmaking process.

Installation of the baghouse system will help bring the facility into full compliance with a consent decree with state environmental officials.
