Reclamation of waste at Ironmaking

During the No.5 Blast Furnace cast house floor trough repairs, a significant amount of waste products are generated including refractory material, iron skulls and sand. A reclamation program was put in place to minimise the stockpiled waste by extracting materials for on-selling and reintroducing other materials back into the steelmaking process.

These reclamation activities have reduced the amount of material required to be stockpiled by 1600t, with the resultant reclaimed material (iron skulls) able to be recycled in the steelmaking process.
