About the product

Personnel responsible for day-to-day plant operations, those in government, regulatory or standard-setting organizations, or those seeking to influence them, such as industry associations will find this publication to be their main source of reference. It gives an overview of current and best practices used in the different steelmaking processes to prevent pollution, reports on the latest pollution control equipment available and explains how by-products can be efficiently re-processed. A systematic approach to management through the use of formalised Environmental Management Systems (EMS) is examined, as well as some of the other valuable tools such as environmental impact assessment, cleaner production assessment, life-cycle assessment and environmental reporting.
