Steelworks sites present numerous geotechnical and geo-environmental challenges due in part to the enormous throughput of geological materials used to make steel, but also in part due to the past habit of informally disposing of process wastes around the plants.
Shallow ground conditions are often highly variable, both geotechnically and chemically, as are the properties of the various waste streams produced in iron and steel making.
This talk will examine the various processes carried out to produce steel, identifying the raw materials, the wastes and the by-products and considering their normal fate. The geotechnical peculiarities of the materials found on these sites will be discussed along with innovative solutions currently used on sites to manage the materials and avoid problems experienced in the past.
The conference will explore the implementation of COP 26 policies, including a wide range of topics which will positively impact the way we live our lives from transport strategy through using new and sustainable technologies.
The University of Strathclyde and the British Hydrological Society are pleased to invite you to the 2022 British Hydrological Society Peter Wolf Early Career Hydrologist’s Symposium, which will be hosted by the Centre for Water, Environment, Sustainability & Public Health at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow from 22 to 23 March 2022.
