Within the scope of the WEISS joint project, SMS group - in collaboration with other project partners - has developed a new process for water recovery. Now, customers can test the efficiency of the method at their site by themselves and rent the remote-controlled pilot plant.
It is not often that water is on the agenda as an essential resource in steelmaking, as, until now, it has been available nearly everywhere and at any time wanted. However, water will become increasingly scarce and more expensive all around the globe. The resulting water shortage will hence have a growing impact on the production capacities in steelmaking plants in many parts of the world.
In order to offer a solution to plant operators who are facing or will face temporary or even permanent water shortages, SMS group has developed, within the scope of the WEISS joint project, a cost-efficient process to recover water from blowdown water.
