Environmental Code of Practice for integrated steel mills: abstract


This Environmental Code of Practice for Integrated Steel Mills outlines environmental concerns associated with the integrated mills segment of the steel manufacturing sector and advances recommendations aimed at preserving and enhancing the quality of the environment that is affected by these mills. Environmental performance standards are included for atmospheric emissions, water and wastewater, wastes, and environmental management practices. These recommended practices may be used by the steel sector, regulatory agencies, and the general public as sources of technical and policy guidance but do not negate any regulatory requirements.

The Code identifies minimum environmental performance standards for new integrated steel mills and provides a set of environmental performance goals that existing mills can strive to achieve through continual improvement over time.
