Abstract

Iron & Steel industry has been notified under one of 17 highly polluting industries in India by Ministry of Environment & Forest. In an integrated steel plant, 1-1.2 tons of solid wastes are generated for every ton of steel produced. Though conventionally being dumped, sustainability of Indian Steel Industry critically depends on management of these wastes. This paper enumerates the waste management practice, starting with emphasizing on continual reduction of waste generation, recycling and reuse, and thereby ultimately minimizing adverse impact of steel plant solid waste on mother earth.
