Clients’ frequent situations
A company acquires a slag disposal area. The company has no experience in slag processing. Among the employees, there is a manufacturing expert that has experience in processing some other type of waste at best. However, he has no knowledge in designing any crushing and screening equipment. Here, the creativity begins… Choosing what type of crusher: mobile unit or fixed plant? Who will be the manufacturer? How about producing marketable material first, and then figure out what to do with the rest? The company starts shipping scrap to plants, and the plants get back with 40-50% impurities. The company deals with all kinds of minor equipment breakages and loses precious time for parts replacement. The owner starts asking questions, where is the profit? And only 4 years later, the company gets the hang of it and starts receiving profit from the project.
A smelter decides to process its own slag. But it’s not up-market to do the waste recycling, so persons responsible for this project are usually assigned based on the “leftover principle”. Normally, the owner is not interested in controlling the efficiency of waste processing activities. He is more into dealing with strategic objectives of increasing the production capacity. And what about the slag? At best, it repays the investments made. Nobody controls its efficiency, stealing is thriving. The company loses money that could be so useful in these times of crisis.
A smelter takes the environmental challenge. The owner said that the slag disposal area had to be cleared in 2 years. A tender was hold, and high-priced equipment was purchased from European vendors. A contractor has manufactured and installed the equipment in a responsible manner according to the available drawings and customer’s terms of reference. However, nobody thought of waste structure and composition. The works started, but the estimated Fe recovery values yet cannot be reached. And we’re lucky if this figure is being monitored at all, because the owner has more challenging tasks than production waste. The slag processing is being performed within the scheduled dates. Third parties buy crushed stone of poor quality which they then process to recover expensive iron-bearing material. The plant loses money that could be so useful in these times of crisis.
