Industrial Applications: Steel Mill Waste

Overview

The steel making industry produces a large about of Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) dust, as part of normal manufacturing processes. The EPA has labeled this type of waste K061, and defines it as the “emission control dust/sludge from the primary production of steel in electrical furnaces”, which results in high zinc levels in non-wastewater (anything over 15%).

Steel facilities store, and sometimes treat, production dust, primarily K061, in order to lower the cost of waste management through waste accumulation. In the lead smelting industry, attempts to handle furnace feed materials differently are unlikely. If generators are not able to store waste to facilitate transportation and treatment, they would have to seek management alternatives, such as offsite stabilization. That concept would be realistic only if waste were to be sent off-site immediately after generation.


Remediation Process

Since any technology that can meet the numeric standards for K061 can be used to treat EAF dust contaminated non-wastewaters, the EPA believes that there is sufficient treatment capacity for K061.
