A major goal of the Bureau of Mines is to investigate technology that can reduce the nation's dependence on strategic and critical imported raw materials. To this end, the Tuscaloosa Research Center has been involved in a program to investigate the potential of utilizing waste materials to produce refractories containing chromite and alumina. Magnesite-chrome brick have been produced by recycling steel plant waste refractories using conventional beneficiation techniques. In addition, preliminary evaluation of a synthetic high-alumina dross appears promising. Currently, some high-alumina refractory waste materials are being used in commercial refractories and demand is increasing for recycled refractories.
