Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The European Commission has funded two studies on the effects of tramp elements on the properties of flat products and long products in order to establish what information is available; the results of these studies are reported in this publication. Scrap-based steel production is of growing importance and a steadily increasing range of grades and products is envisaged. It is generally agreed that continued recycling of scrap could result in an increase of residual elements in the steels produced in the coming years. Four industries and three research centres from seven European countries participated in the work. Industrial and environmental aspects are addressed in relation to the concept of sustainable development. The scientific and technical challenge faced by the sector is significant and is somewhat illustrated by the large number of research projects undertaken, several of which have been or are being funded through the ECSC research programme 'Steel'.
