A further measure to improve the environmental situation around the thyssenkrupp steel mill in the north of Duisburg has now been implemented: thyssenkrupp MillServices & Systems, a company of the Materials Services business area, has further optimized the recycling processes in BOF shop 2 in Duisburg-Beeckerwerth. As part of the project, the mill services experts have commissioned two modern torch cutting chambers and will carry out size reduction of revert scrap arising during steel production for the coming ten years.
A torch cutting chamber is a roofed, enclosed torch cutting station. Under it, large pieces of steel scrap are reduced in size. During the work, employees stand outside the chambers and are therefore protected. The new chambers at the thyssenkrupp steel mill are equipped with a modern fume extraction system. Hundreds of filter bags ensure that dust cannot escape into the environment.
