Recycling of Residues From Stainless Steel Production

Since the start up of the Befesa ScanDust plant more than 1 Mt of stainless steel making residues has been recycled and approx. 500,000 tons of valuable metals recovered. By granulating the recovered metal via the GRANSHOT® granulation process a high process yield is achieved. The product, granulated API, is returned to the steel makers or sold on the open market.
