Kolkata, Nov 20 (IANS) Visa Steel, a leading player in the Indian special steel industry, has entered into an agreement with US−based SunCoke Energy to form a coke−making joint−venture in India.

According to the agreement, SunCoke, which operates coke−making facilities that produce over five million tonnes of metallurgical coke per year for integrated steelmakers, will invest approximately Rs.368 crore ($67 million) to acquire a 49 percent stake in the joint venture.
