Solid Wastes Recyling through Sinter-Status at Tata Steel

Yadav, U S and Das, B K and Kumar, Ashok and Sandhu, H S (2002) Solid Wastes Recyling through Sinter-Status at Tata Steel. In: Clean Technologies for Metallurgical Industries (EWM-2002), 24-25 January, 2002, National Metallurgical Laboratory (CSIR), Jamshedpur.



Integrated steel plants generate several by-products rich in iron, flux and fuel values, categorised as waste. These by-products contain, besides mineral values, hazar-dous constituents causing damages to the environment. The environmental quality consciousness, the product cost competitiveness and high mineral values of these wastes have resulted in attempts to recyle these materials. Recycling recovers the mineral values, preserves the dec-reasing natural resources and deteriorating environment and eliminates the disposal cost. Sinter plant provides an avenue for recycling of these wastes. Recycling decreases the cost of sinter and hence the cost of steel produced. Present paper outlines the status of waste generation, their characteristics, and the quantity being recycled via the sinter plant at Tata Steel.Furthermore, it highlights the problems, which restricts its further recycling and discusses its influence on cost and quality of sinter.
