Zinc recovery from EAF dust through thermal reduction

Abstract : Electric arc furnace dust (EAFD) generated during the recycling of steel-scrap is classified as a hazardous waste for landfilling. This is because it contains leachable heavy metals such as zinc, lead, ... Recovery of these metals could result in both resources conservation and resolving waste disposal problems. A study of the thermal reduction of a sample of EAFD was carried out in an inert gas atmosphere using coke as a reducing agent. Preferential volatilization of zinc and lead was achieved during the reduction process at about 800 °C. More than 96 % of both zinc and lead were removed from the dust and were recovered in the condensates. The treatment residue was essentially composed of iron oxides and almost free from heavy metals.
