In this article we will discuss about the methods and procedures to treat and control wastewater from iron and steel industry. ADVERTISEMENTS: The iron and steel industry, as treated here, includes pig iron production, steel making, rolling operations and those finishing operations common in steel mills, i.e. cold reduction, tin plating and galvanising.

  1. Introduction. Iron and steel industry is the pillar industry of national economy. In the past few decades, iron and steel technology has made tremendous development, namely, global steel production reached 1, million tonnes by However, the steel industry is one of the most energy-intensive industries, and accounts for approximately 4–5% of total world energy consumption. The steel industry in North America has been recycling steel scrap for more than years. The steel industry needs scrap to produce new steel, which ensures that all steel products contain anywhere from 25 percent up to percent recycled content. It also is cheaper to recycle steel than it is to mine virgin ore to manufacture new steel. Solid waste generation in steel industry The technological developments for solid waste management in Indian iron and steel industry is at advanced stage but moving at much slower pace than desired. Generally, for integrated steel plant, each ton of liquid steel needs about The steel industry is a major generator of carbon dioxide, more from the use of carbon as a reducing agent in the production of iron from iron ore than from its use as a source of energy. By , through a variety of measures for blast furnace coke rate reduction, waste-heat recovery and energy saving, carbon dioxide emissions by the iron and.

Solid waste management in steel industry is broadly classified in “4 Rs” i.e. reduce, reuse, recycle and restore the materials. Reuse and recycling the entire solid waste generated in the.   Steel has one outstanding characteristic: it can be endlessly recycled without its material qualities being compromised. The iron atoms are indestructible, and by melting scrap metal it is simple to get the atoms to arrange themselves in a new, regular way to form new steel with new properties.
