  • Automotive Shredder Residue its Application as a Reductant and Fuel in the Blast Furnaces of the Steel Industry

    Each year approximately 12 million automobiles, which have reached the end of their useful lives, are shredded in North America for the recovery of steel and other metals. Along with the metals the shredding operation produces a by-product known as autoshredder residue (ASR). ASR is a diverse mixture of organic and inorganic materials such as plastics, textile fabrics, glass etc.North American ...


  • Recycling of Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) sludge in iron and steel works

    The recycling and utilisation of iron-bearing by-products such as dust, scale and sludge has been tried and is being practised in many iron and steel-making industries due to its associated benefits. However, the high moisture content of the Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) sludge (35?40%) is a major obstacle in its recycling. The management of this waste has become an important issue due to ...

  • Full probabilistic service life prediction and life cycle assessment of concrete with fly ash and blast–furnace slag in a submerged marine environment: a parameter study

    Nowadays, more attention is being paid to sustainability in construction. Over the years, the concrete research community has developed a wide range of potential 'green' concretes. To reduce cement related CO2 emissions, a considerable part of the traditional binder can be replaced with industrial by–products. However, as a result of the current focus on comparative durability ...
