Saint Gobain Abrasives
This project, done in conjunction with Saint-Gobain Abrasives, responds to the rising cost of nickel and chromium, the major components of stainless steel by conducting a comprehensive cost analysis of the stainless steel production and recycling processes. Background research was performed with company surveys for important information about specific machines which recycle stainless steel chips. With these data, conclusions were prepared about the cost-effectiveness of recycling as opposed to selling or dumping the stainless steel chips. A cost structure analysis and new recycling methods for specific applications were proposed.
