Abstract:

With current emphasis and legislation directed toward improvement of the quality of environment, the paper briefly examines the progress of one of the largest waste generators - the American steel industry - in its abatement research and consequent air and water quality control programs. Public concern about steelmaking waste discharges is emphasized, and some economic and technical difficults in meeting abatement standards in steel plants are identified. Aggregate cost data related to the installation, operation, and maintenance of waste control equipment are reviewed, and the significance of these expenditures reveals the steel industrys positive response to pollution control regulations.
