The iron and steel slag is also known as ferrous slag and is produced by adding lime and silica sand or limestone to the blast furnaces that results in eliminating the impurities from scrap, iron ore and other ferrous materials that also results in the lowering of the heat requirements of the iron-steel making. The iron and steel slag can be achieved by numerous processes like blast furnace slags, granulated blast furnace slags, sir cooled blast furnace slag, steelmaking slag, converter slag and electric arc furnace slag. The applications of slag are widely determined by the process that is applied to cool the slag due to which the steel slags are cooled under suitable conditions, resulting into a dense and hard slag that is extensively used as an inexpensive aggregate.
The iron and steel slag market is assumed to grow in the forecast owing to the expansion of the construction and building industry coupled with strict environmental emission control regulations. However, the abundant availability of natural aggregates like crushed stone, sand and gravel might restrict the growth of the iron and steel slag market. On the other hand, the environmental legislation by government and international bodies is likely to showcase growth opportunities for the iron and steel slag market during the forecast period.
