Waste Not, Want Not


Corus is working on a number of levels to help safeguard the environment. The international steel business is working on a global scale with other steel manufacturers to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Here on Teesside, Corus is also working with other businesses on a range of projects that benefit the environment. What's more, many of the projects are also producing business benefits for Corus Teesside Cast Products (TCP).

STAFF at TCP are constantly on the lookout for ideas that will improve the business and help to safeguard the environment. In recent months, new projects have included schemes to recycle and reuse by-products from the ironmaking and steelmaking processes.

One such project - launched at TCP's blast furnace at Redcar - has seen a partnership blossom between Corus and Tarmac.

In a bid to further reduce waste and to increase cash flow, TCP has been liaising with Tarmac to improve this arrangement. An improvement team has been set up, with specialists from both Tarmac and Corus, with the aims of improving the quality of processed slag and reducing the output of air-cooled slag.

Ian Gofton, Redcar blast furnace manager, explained: "The continuous improvement team was set up to identify areas for improvement and opportunities to increase the sale of slag. Air-cooled slag is detrimental to the environment in terms of odour emissions so any reduction is a positive step.

"By working in co-operation with Tarmac we have managed to reduce the amount of air cooled slag from 35% down to 15%." Waste reduction At TCP's steelmaking plant another successful project launched in recent weeks is highlighting the big benefits of waste reduction.

In a joint project with scrap processing and management company, MultiServ, a waste product - known as 'skull' - at the basic oxygen steel (BOS) plant is now reclaimed and used to make high quality steel. …
