Secondary Recycling of Smelter Slags


The modern structure of ferrous metallurgy slags recovery has been shown. Growth of recycling amounts is connected with high-capacity stationary and mobile crushing and screening plants (both foreign- and domestic made). The issues of environment protection against dust emissions still remain unsolved.

Keywords: smelter slags, recycling technologies, crushing and screening plants, extraction and cleaning of metal inclusions
