The global ferrous slag market size was significantly robust in 2020 and is expected to register a steady revenue CAGR over the forecast period. Key factors driving market revenue growth are increasing need for steel and iron in the construction sector, including use in granular base, embankments, engineered fill, highway shoulders, and hot mix asphalt pavement.
Iron and steel manufacturing companies produce ferrous slag as a byproduct. It is made by adding minerals such as limestone, dolomite, lime, and silica sand to blast furnaces and steel furnaces in order to remove impurities from iron ore, scrap, and other ferrous feeds as well as reduce heat needs of iron and steel making processes. Slag is formed as a calcium silicate melt that floats on top of molten crude iron or steel and is subsequently separated from liquid metal. As most types of processed slag are only worth a few dollars per ton, steel producers usually hire other businesses to remove, cool, process and sell it. This technique of cooling is critical to the slag's commercial applications.
Slag is a wide word that encompasses any non-metallic co-products formed during separation of a metal from its ore. The chemistry and shape of slag vary depending on metal generated and solidification technique employed. Depending on the industry from which they arise, slags can be classified as ferrous (iron/steel) or non-ferrous (copper, lead/zinc). Blast furnace slag, basic oxygen furnace slag, electric arc furnace slag, secondary metallurgical slag, and other slags can be produced depending on iron and steel manufacturing process. Steel and iron production processes require less heat as a result of addition of aforementioned material to the furnaces. Ferrous slag is formed largely as a calcium silicate that floats on top of molten crude steel and iron, and it may then be extracted from molten metal.
