Company to the left looks like UniFrax. They make high-temperature insulation. And that would mean the tower in the distance on the right is IN/KOTE -- now owned by ArcelorMittal, the world's largest steel company, at 98.2 million metric tons per year (2010) output.

The largest US steel company, US Steel, is #8 largest in the world, at 22.3 million metric tons per year. Incidentally, #2 in the world is China's BaoSteel at 37 million MT/year -- a distance behind ArcelorMittal, a Luxembourg-based company.

Corn is the primary feedstock for ethanol for automobile fuel.
Soy beans represent a primary feedstaock for biodiesel.
