Since around 2000, the most important Chinese steel producers have been investing in granulation and grinding plants for blast furnace slag. It is currently estimated that 95 % of the blast furnace slag is granulated and used entirely in the cement and concrete industry. Almost 70 % of the steelworks slag goes to dumps and landfills (Fig. 13).
The dumping of blast furnace slag by steel plants has been a perennial challenge in India and even in some of the developed countries in the world. These steel slag dumps contribute to the generation of airborne particles causing air pollution and also to groundwater and surface-water contamination through different pathways. Author: India Today Web DeskPeople also ask What are the two types of blast furnace slag? Two types of blast furnace slag such air-cooled slag and granulated slag are being generated from the steel plants. In India around 40% of this slag is produced in the form of granulated slag. The specific gravity of the slag is approximately 2.90 with its bulk density varying in the range of 1200–1300 kg/m 3. slag and sludge from steel industries www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0921344906001297 What kind of slag does a steel plant produce? The various solid wastes in the form of slags and sludges that are emerged from steel plants are blast furnace slag, blast furnace flue dust and sludge, Linz–Donawitz (LD) converter slag, LD sludge, LD dust, mill scale, mill sludge, acetylene sludge, etc. The solids and liquid wastes generated from a steel plant are shown in Table 1. slag and sludge from steel industries www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0921344906001297 How is slag used in the construction industry? Some of the recovered slag is used internally in the steelmaking furnace or sinter plant, while approximately 50% of the recovered slag is used externally in construction applications, primarily roads. One of the main barriers to using some steelmaking slags is their high content of free lime, which is not ideal for construction applications.

In steelmaking, slag–metal mixing is a very common phenomenon and it occurs due to the shear at the slag–metal interface caused by excessive liquid steel flow. 37 This mixing leads to emulsification of steel in slag, which increases the total interfacial area and consequently the rate of slag–metal reactions. Steelmaking Slag - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics www.sciencedirect.com/topics/engineering/steelmaking-slag ibm.nic.in › files › 02182020101538Slag_Iron_Steel_2018Steel plants utilise cold slag for internal consumption and also for outside sale. The slag after cooling is crushed and used as road metal and railway ballast. Granulated slag produced in steel plants is also sold outside to cement plants. Slag application also reduces the overall cost of production of cement. JSPL has established Nandyal
Ferrous slags are by-products derived from the steelmaking process. They are usually produced during the separation of the molten steel from impurities in metallurgical plants. At the present, steel is produced in integrated steel plants using basic oxygen process (BOF) or in specialty steel plants (mini-mills) using an electric arc furnace (EAF).
Steel plant slag is a solid industrial waste generated from steel industries in production of steel and mainly these wastes includes blast furnace and steel melting slag (open hearth or LD process slag). It can be categorized as carbon steel slag and stainless steel slag according to the type of steel, and as pretreatment slag, Linz-Donawitz (LD) converter slag, electrical arc furnace slag (EAFS), ladle refining slag and casting residue according to the steelmaking process (Meng and Liu
Experimental Techniques and Methodology MaterialsGranulated BFS used in this study was obtained from the el-Hadjar steel plant (Annaba, Algeria).The slag sample was washed with cold and hot water to eliminate the soil residue and dissolve the salts in slag and the desiccated K 2 CO 3 at 103 °C were used as a fine powder, H 3 PO 4 as a solution of density 1.71 at 20 °C. Their binaries were prepared by simple mixing.Most of the chemicals used in the experiment were TMG (trace metal-grade
Unlike the slag of other steel making processes (electric arc furnace, basic oxygen furnace), the blast furnace slag has the right chemistry to become a cement clinker substitute [ 9] when quenched and ground afterwards and is known as GGBFS.
In agriculture, slags can be used as fertilizers and corrective of soil acidity [ 1 ]. Slags are calcium and magnesium silicates, which show neutralizing action due to SiO 32− base [ 2 ]. Additionally, steel slags have been used as a low-cost source to supply Si to rice plants [ 3 ].
In total, between 1–1.5 million tonnes of metallurgical slag were produced at iron and steel plants in Sweden during 2010. This production was distributed among a series of different slag types: blast furnace slag, LD slag, electric arc furnace slag, AOD slag, ladle furnace slag and slag from desulphurisation.
