The steel making industry produces a large amount of Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) dust, as part of normal manufacturing processes. The EPA has labeled this type of waste K061, and defines it as the “emission control dust/sludge from the primary production of steel in electrical furnaces”, which results in high zinc levels in non-wastewater (anything over 15%).
Steel facilities store, and sometimes treat, production dust, primarily K061, in order to lower the cost of waste management through waste accumulation. If generators are not able to store waste to facilitate transportation and treatment, off-site stabilization is possible only if waste were to be removed immediately after generation.
