Processing and Recycling Experiments of Dust from Electric Arc Furnace
The processing and recycling experiments of dust from Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) in industrial conditions aimed at highlighting the minimizing possibility of this waste by transforming it into a by-product that can represent either a secondary raw material for steel making in EAF or to recover iron, zinc and lead (the Waltz process). Electric-arc furnace dust (EAFD) is a by-product of steel production and recycling. This fine-grained material contains high amounts of zinc and iron as well as significant amounts of potentially toxic elements such as lead, cadmium and chromium. Therefore, the treatment and stabilization of this industrial residue is necessary. Leaching test is a method of evaluating the impact of waste that is stored (soil, water table).
