Reduction in water use at Slabmaking

Slabmaking is one of the largest water consumers within the Port Kembla Steelworks. During FY2016, a number of projects were executed including: - repairing leaks, - running less blowdown to the Sinter Plant, and - reducing slabs through the cooler. These projects have resulted in a total water saving of 224,100 kL (equivalent to 90 Olympic swimming pools each year).
