Galco Steel Ltd. is the largest hot dip galvanizer in Ireland.
This project at a hot dip galvanising plant originally aimed to investigate the feasibility of a an acid recovery process and production of an iron solution more suited for use in the waste water treatment industry in Ireland.
However as a result of the extensive investigations undertaken by Galco as part of this project, an alternative solution has been implemented which is in fact further up the waste prevention hierarchy. Increased analysis of spent pickle made Galco more aware of the chemistry of their process and they are now moving to implement simpler solutions which will improve the quality of their spent pickle.
