Waste Water Treatment
Waste Water Treatment

The ideal medium for trickling filters in sewerage treatment works, surface water run offs, farming effluent, or industrial effluent

The cubical and vesicular nature of steel slag makes it an ideal medium for trickling filters in sewage treatment works, surface water run offs, farming effluent, or industrial effluent.

EAF steel slag is used for phosphorus reduction and heavy metals reduction in industrial and agricultural effluent. Slag’s vesicular nature, which provides a greater surface area contact for the elements in solution and for the microbes that help consume the bacteria, means that its best use as a percolating filter media is in Waste Water Treatment plants.
