The many production facilities within the steel industry, e.g. the blast furnace, converter, continuous caster, hot and cold strip mills and the coke oven plant require immense quantities of water for the cooling circuits and for gas scrubbing. During the last few years, the majority of steel plants have managed to significantly reduce freshwater usage per ton of steel through water recycling and process optimization. However, the high water quality standards required for the water circuits and regulations for waste water remain unchanged, resulting in an increased demand for professional water treatment.
