RIVM New Report Finds Toxic Pollutants from Tata Steel Ijmuiden
According to a report by the Dutch public health institute RIVM, locals living near the Tata Steel steelworks in Ijmuiden in the Netherlands are still being exposed to dust containing high concentrations of carcinogenic substances. The report showed that children in Wijk aan Zee are at the highest risk, with high levels of polycarbon-based pollutants and metals, including lead, found in coarse dust particles deposited in Beverwijk, Velsen-Noord, and IJmuiden. The findings are similar to those of a previous study in 2020, with the exception of a continued fall in the amount of iron. Tata Steel responded to the report by saying that the RIVM did not investigate the origin of all the dust particles found, and that a “substantial” part of the lead, zinc, and copper deposits could have come from other sources. The company said that its own probes had shown the amount of carcinogenic substances had been halved compared to 2019 and other measures to curb emissions are in the pipeline.

Nippon Steel Sheet Piles used in GIKEN’s Sozokan & Research Building
Nippon Steel has made history by using steel sheet piles as the main structural material for a building, from the roof to the side walls. The Sozokan, The Museum of Piling Machines, and the Research Building on the premises of RED HILL 1967, the base of GIKEN, use NS-SP-J steel sheet piles that were jointly developed to have zero gap with the existing structure, making them ideal for space-restricted construction sites in urban areas and temporary soil fasteners that utilize their width to shorten the construction period. The Sozokan and the Research Building also incorporate confined ground seismic damper technology, which prevents the foundation from deforming as a result of soft ground and liquefaction by enclosing and compacting the ground with steel sheet piles. This project is a showcase of the flexibility of steel sheet piles and highlights their strengths, which are often utilized for river revetments, road retaining walls, and reinforced soil retaining walls. Nippon Steel and GIKEN have collaborated on the research and development of many steel sheet pile and steel pipe pile products, as well as construction methods using these products. The Gyropress Method™ is an example of a wall structure construction method developed in collaboration between Nippon Steel and GIKEN, which inserts steel pipe piles with special tips into the ground in rows using GYRO PILER™ to make it easier to excavate the ground. Since its launch in 2004, it has been used in many applications, mainly for river revetments and road retaining walls. Visitors can see these products and construction methods showcased on the premises of RED HILL 1967, which will open in May. Nippon Steel, in collaboration with GIKEN, will continue to promote the use of steel sheet piles and steel pipe piles and propose new ways to use them. The adoption of steel sheet piles in the Sozokan and the Research Building marks a significant milestone in the use of these products and is expected to inspire more innovative building designs in the future.
