Slag Management
Slag Management

From slag management to innovative environmental product solutions

Slag occurs in nearly all metallurgical processes. It is a valuable resource that can be converted into economically and ecologically beneficial products. Our slag management capability includes an innovative array of tailored services that embrace the entire production process, managing all elements of risk and recovery. Built upon our broad experience, we optimize service cost and reduce the environmental impact for our customers, globally. Where required, we also take control of the liquid slag direct from the furnace area and transport it to other areas on the site, where it is poured into confined pits, cooled, treated and conditioned.  We then transform slag into innovative second use products, reducing or eliminating material sent to landfill. Processing on-site uses less energy and results in lower carbon emissions for the customer.
