MILLPORT, ALABAMA – Steel Dust Recycling (SDR) a major EAF (Electric Arc Furnace) Dust recycler in the American Continent, announced today that the company is undergoing an expansion with the addition of a third Waelz Kiln. Kiln #3 will be able to process an additional 110,000 tons per year of EAF Dust at its Millport, Alabama location. The expansion is to be finalized by July of 2016.
