British Steel selects Suez for water management contract

British Steel Ltd has awarded a chemical and monitoring service contract to Suez Water Technologies & Solutions to improve its environmental footprint and compliance at the company’s integrated steel plant in Scunthorpe, UK.

Suez will provide chemicals, services and digital solutions for cooling water, boiler water and wastewater treatment. This will improve automation and offer better transparency into chemical usage, water quality for reuse potential and wastewater clarification.

“We’re focused on improving our asset protection and environmental performance, and with water playing such an important role in the steelmaking process, it’s important we have first-class systems in place to manage our water quality and develop new and improved ways of working,” said Edward Arnott, operations director, Energy at British Steel.
