Ppr in Char Recovery & Recycling of Elec Arc Furnace Dusts 1982 Feb; :Iva-1--iv.a-24
One large representative sample of carbon steel dust and one large representative sample of stainless steel dust were given a series of chemical dissolution or leaching tests by the Rolla Research Center. From the results, it would appear that because of the relatively high unit value of the cr, ni, mo, etc., arc furnace dusts from stainless and specialty steelmaking can best be treated pyrometallurgically for recycle by techniques such as in-plant greenballing and recycling to the furnace, or centralized processing to produce master alloy for recycle.
