Guidelines for Environmental Management of Iron and Steel Works

United Nations Environment Programme (1986)

These guidelines provide, in sections 1 and 2, an evaluation of the major environmental issues involved. This is followed by a check listing (table 2), setting out points requiring attention, where effects can be significant. Finally each sector of the Industry normally associated directly with a steel plant is considered in sufficient depth to suggest actions which could be taken in developing policy and in adapting practices to local conditions. Generality is maintained, with the intention that the information should retain, for some time, its relevance to the user.
