Quick Reference Guide 4: Electric Arc Furnace Slag is Live!

"Electric Arc Furnace Slag (EAFS) is a co-product of the steel making process. The production of EAFS involves steel scrap and fluxes which are added to a refractory lined cup- shaped vessel. This vessel has a lid through which carbon electrodes are passed. An arc is induced between the scrap and electrodes and the resultant heat generated melts scrap and fluxes producing molten steel and slag.

Through its research activities between relevant stakeholders, the Australasian (iron & steel) Slag Association continues to increase the recognition and understanding of the beneficial use of iron and steel slags amongst industry members, government and the community though projects such as the Quick Reference Guide (QRG) Update.

This QRG updates the Guide to the use of Iron and Steel slag in roads, focusing on the specific aspects related to the use of Electric Arc Furnace Slag (EAFS) in terms of its physical and chemical characteristics, applications and case studies."
