Global market leader providing environmental solutions for industrial and specialty waste streams Harsco Corporation announced that its Harsco Environmental division has successfully renewed a multi-year services contract with JSW Steel at its Dolvi operation in Maharashtra in India. The current service contract, which includes the processing of steel melting shop-1 slag, expires in June 2022. The renewed contract adds the processing of SMS-2 slag, beginning July 2021, to support Dolvi till it develops a single large metal recovery plant at a new location, which will double its capacity. The renewal ensures HE can provide continuity for JSW Dolvi beyond expiration of the existing contract, with an upgraded plant, to cater excess slag processing until the future expansion at the new MRP takes place. The formal renewal to handle SMS-2 slag production begins around July 2021.
Harsco Environmental currently provides several services at the Dolvi mill, including metal recovery, scrap management and under-furnace digging. These services are directly linked to consistent/continuous steel production and are critical for plant operations. Further, in 2019, Harsco Environmental secured three additional multi-year contracts to set up, operate and maintain slag briquetting, slag cooling and meltshop services at JSW Dolvi.
