Abstract
Bulk chemical analyses including the ep toxicity test were undertaken by the Avondale Research Center. As expected, the alloying elements chromium, nickel, and molybdenum show up prominently in the stainless steel and specialty alloy dusts. The amounts of these elements are sufficient to make recovery a viable activity. Carbon steel dusts are richer in zinc (up to 28 wt-pct) and lead (up to 3.8 wt-pct) because of the greater use of galvanized and other coated products in the melt.
