Environmental Concept of Badische Group
Jim Belous, Bender Corp.
This paper will describe how a properly designed environmental concept helped a modern, high-production steel plant to operate within the strict emission limits of the European Union surrounded by vineyards along river Rhine. The combination of proactive approach and close connection with the local community and local government produces a good recipe for successful coexistence.

Introduction

8:15 a.m. EDT

Keys to Effective Evaporative Cooling
Gordon Janes, JAGO Environmental Technologies
Water sprays are often used for gas quenching in ductwork and quench vessels to protect steelwork or downstream air pollution control (APC) equipment, as an integral part of environmental solutions for dioxin and furan control or for enhancing APC equipment performance. This presentation will provide the keys to a successful installation: heat and mass balance calculations, drop size calculations, good nozzle design with understood characteristics and drop size control, understanding of the gas flow upstream and throughout the spray zone, and finally the correct design of the pumping and control system.

The Nuts and Bolts of Stack Emissions Testing for the Iron and Steel Industry
Darryl Christy, Grace Consulting Inc.
There is a good amount of pre-planning that a facility (production, engineering and maintenance) needs to do when preparing for a stack test program, whether it’s for permit compliance or engineering purposes. This presentation will lay out the common pitfalls and issues involved with stack testing so a facility can address them in advance and ensure as smooth of a test as possible.
