Topic: Converison Of Mill Scale Waste Into Valuable Product Via Carbon Thermic Reduction
Abstract: The Steel Department of CMRDI is oriented to deepen and maximize the local manufacturing of special steels. These efforts include development of the technology package for the production of special steels of large imported and large market needed quantity with high cost, production of special ferroalloys required to produce such steels and improving the economics of steel production through recycling of produced waste materials. Mill scales is one of the major wastes for steel industry that was a good candidate for the research for recycling and reuse, CMRDI team worked on mill scale as potential candidate to be a good economic factor in steel industry by innovating recycling technologies for production of high add value expensive products as high purity iron and special steels.
