Estimated cost of steel slag disposal.
Pittsburgh, PA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, IC 8440, 1970 Jan; :1-18
Costs of disposing of steel slag are estimated based on the present method and a proposed alternate method for a steel mill in the Pittsburgh area. Estimated cost data were calculated by the Bureau of Mines and do not reflect the investment and operating costs and credits of a specific steel mill and processing plant. The alternate method of steel slag disposal would result in an appreciable cost saving to the mill and concurrently supply the industrial and commercial markets with low-cost, high-quality construction materials.
