     History
    Haut-Fourneau 6, shortened to HF6, was an enormous blast furnace and steel works located in Seraing, Belgium. Other than that there is very little exact information out there floating around, and if it is it's in either French or Flemish. It operated, at a guess, until around the mid-00s.

     Future Plans
    There will probably be an industrial regeneration of the land.
