We manufacture a range of products for building and construction, whitegoods and manufacturing applications. From steel slab, plate, hot and cold rolled coil, coated and painted strip products through to roof and wall cladding, purlins and house framing, and engineered building solutions, BlueScope’s products meet a multitude of end uses.
We are very proud of our history in effectively managing our by-products in a way which minimises the impact on the environment. BlueScope’s Operations have created a significant by-products industry, in line with the company’s commitment to reusing materials rather than adding them to the waste stream.
Within our Rolling mills – Spent Pickle Liquor (Ferrous Chloride) is generated as a result of using a Hydrochloric Acid solution to clean strip steel after it has been rolled.
Ferrous Chloride is used in sewerage treatment to break down detergents, washing powders and fertilisers that can otherwise cause excessive blue-green algae growth in the water system. It also plays an important role in managing the sewerage odours and piping networks of the Water authorities by minimising the corrosion caused by Hydrogen Sulphide gas (H2S) within the sewerage network.
The Ferrous Chloride product has been predominantly used significantly in the Waste Water treatment industry in NSW with some usage in QLD, SA, Vic and TAS.
