The need to make better use of the waste generated at the hot mill has led us to develop the IronGUARD programme. It employs a unique and patented new polymer that prevents the oil from adhering to the mill scale. This will keep the oil content to less than 1%. This would allow you to recycle the mill scale back to the steelmaking process via the sinter plant or blast furnace. Or you can sell the high iron-bearing material to others that can use the clean scale in their process. In either case, you eliminate the costly disposal and transportation fees.
Recycling and reusing mill waste most often involves investment. Nalco is committed to helping you minimise the risk of this investment by providing value-added solutions to your water management needs. Our goal is to provide solutions that enhance your competitive position, improve your profitability and maximise the return on your investment (ROI).
