Modernization of the new dedusting system at the steel shop in Dąbrowa

Dąbrowa Górnicza, September 22, 2017 r.

ArcelorMittal Poland started construction of a new dedusting system at the steelshop in Dąbrowa Górnicza unit. On 22nd of September representatives of our company, invited guests: representatives of Dąbowa Górnicza city council, Environmental Protection Office and local communities signed a memorial plaque.

New dedusting system is one of the projects targeted towards achieving the objectives of the UE directive on emissions (IED), which will enter into force at the end of 2018. Currently, there is one dedusting system operating at the steel shop which covers most of the processes. Modernization which has just started will have two dedusting systems: new dedusting for three converters ( device where liquid steel is produced) and modernization of existing system, which is responsible for remaining process like desulphurization. Thanks to these actions, the dedusting performance will increase threefold. Cost of the project is over 100 m PLN and it shall be completed in the second half of 2018. The project scope involves as well installation of roof hoods, which will be assembled at the level of 40 m. It will allow to eliminate fugitive emissions from the converter bay.

Below some key facts concerning the project:

  • 32 thousand m2 will have filter surface of a new dedusting collector- it is equal to 4 football pitches.
  • 8100- filters bag will be assemblied- in a row they would make 64 km, a distance from DG to Częstochowa
  • 10mg/Nm3 – level of dust emissions will be below this amount, which will be complaint to BAT (best available technologies).

We treat issues aiming at reducing our ecological footprint with the highest priority. I am very glad that in the presence of our key stakeholders we start jobs connected with dedusting system at the steel shop. It will allow us not only to comply with the limits regulated by UE directives but also to meet the expectations of residents of Dąbrowa Górnicza when it comes about reducing our impact on environment- said Geert Verbeeck, CEO and vice-chairman of ArcelorMittal Poland. Vice-president of Dabrowa Górnicza Marcin Bazylak who was present at the meeting said: I am glad that the investment which was announced some time ago becomes a fact. I believe that new dedusting system will contribute to improvement of air quality in our city, and residents of Dabrowa Górnicza will see its effects.

Dedusting system is one of the environmental projects which is being carried out in Dabrowa Górnicza unit. Dedusting systems of two sinter belts (no 1 and 3) are modernized and TAMEH (j.v of ArcelorMittal and TAURON) is progressing with huge environmental investment: denox-desox installation. Value of all these investments is over 700 m PLN.
