Sinha, S N and Agrawal, M K and Prasad, R B and Singh, K K (2002) Proper Management of Metallurgical Wastes - A Paramount Necessity for clean Environment.

Rapid industrialization has led to substantial decline in the quality of the environment. The long journey from mining of iron ores to the production of finished steel generates a variety of solid, gaseous and liquid wastes in considerable quantities. Some of the wastes have adverse effects that have long-term influence and demand remedies. Therefore, it is essential that proper management of harmful wastes be done on priority basis for maintaining clean environment. This paper discusses in detail the various metallurgical wastes generated in steel plants and their effects on environment. The paper also deals with the necessity of recyling of metallurgical wastes and measures taken by Indian integrated steel plants to save and maintain clean environment in and around the factory premises. Some of the recent clean technologies adopted abroad have been briefly presented.
