Waste management by a Steel Manufacturing plant

Steel is one of the very important industry in a developing country and is a driver for a lot of other industries that are dependent directly or indirectly on it. With the wide applications, it is important for the industry to take consistent and conscious steps to ensure minimal wastage without compromising on the quality and quantity of products. Steel is considered as a sustainable product as it is completely recyclable and does not harm the environment. With proper steps, we can make the processes of Steel making sustainable and safe for the environment as well.

Here are some of steps taken for proper waste management by Steel making plants:

1. Recycle and Reuse
Water is one of the important components used in the processes at a Steel manufacturing plant. From providing water for cooling processes, for cleaning purposes, to maintaining temperatures, etc water is an indispensable material used in the manufacturing process. We, at Agni Steels, reuse the water for different processes to ensure no wastage and promoting conserving this important resource. Also, the disposal of waste water is carried out with guidelines to avoid any water pollution that is hazardous to life and property.

2. Minimizing wastes
It is not only important to manage waste properly but to also take steps to efficiently reduce the amount of waste produced in the manufacturing plant. Using quality raw-materials will ensure that the final products are free of any defects, minimizing the number of waste products. Studied process management will ensure calculated usage of materials, gases, temperatures in the processes ensuring lowered wastage. Automation of machinery and processes can also aid in minimizing wastes through human error.

3. Innovative use of solid wastes
Even with the above practices, there can sometimes be some solid wastes that need to be disposed. Most of such solid waste can be recycled but there can be some that can’t be. Industries are increasingly researching and undertaking innovative initiatives that could use these solid wastes. Filling low-lying areas and constructing roads have been some of the ground-breaking movements that have minimized wastes in landfills and also helped in infrastructure development for easier transport. Slag and by-products from the manufacturing plants is treated and used in the cement and concrete industry. Solid wastes from the Steel making industries are also used towards brick making.

With so many initiatives already in plan, industries are increasingly investing time and money in research for minimizing waste and moving towards a clean and green environment without disturbing the boom in the infrastructure and development around the globe.
