Recycling & By-Product Recovery

Maximizing the recycling of waste and by-products and reducing operational costs and environmental impact

As a by-product producer, you are likely aware of our industry’s pressures to increase the value of your by-products and decrease the environmental impact. With deep understanding of the potential of by-products, as well of how businesses can alter their practices to help preserve the environment, we apply unique processes to maximize the internal recycling of by-products, creating savings in raw material use, disposal, and logistic cost for companies like yours.

Recycling Solutions

We take unwanted materials off your hands, put it to good use, and pay you for it. Get to know some of the ways we’re actively recycling by-product materials across the globe:

For the Blast Furnace – BOF route:

  • EcoBriq®: briquetting of by-products like oxide fines, mill scale, blast furnace dust, lime fines, C-scrap, coke breeze and others to create a feedstock to be used in Blast Furnaces and/or BOF
  • Recover A and B scrap from the steel and iron slag
  • Concentrate the C-scrap to be used as Sinter feed
  • Recover pellets, lumps and coke from old waste accumulations

For the Direct Reduction – EAF route:

    • Briquetting of oxide fines and DR pond sludge to produce a feedstock for the Direct Reduction module.
    • Briquetting of DRI fines to be used as a feedstock into the EAF
    • Recovering of remets and HBI/DRI chips
    • Recovering of DR pellets
