Novel and fast slag characterization devices

Development of innovative devices for fast on-line characterization of slag at both the liquid and the solid state and their testing in real industrial contexts.

Advanced models

Accurate modelling and simulation tools forecasting the Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) and Ladle Furnace (LF) slag composition and amount, based on data collected by the above mentioned devices and further process variables.

Decision support concepts

Development of decision support concepts providing technical personnel with a practical help to implement optimal slag conditioning and improved metallurgical process control in the liquid state and optimal slag handling for recycling and/or reuse.
