  • Copper slag is an abrasive blasting grit made of granulated slag from metal smelting processes (also called iron silicate).
  • Copper slag is a by-product created during the copper smelting and refining process.
  • Copper slag is a by-product obtained during the production of copper metal, which can be used as pozzolana in the production of cementing materials.
  • Recycling copper slag to recover metals has been focused on copper recovery.
  • However some copper slag also contains molybdenum in amounts up to 0.4% which is a potential raw material for metal extraction.
  • The physical and geotechnical properties of the spent copper slag were first assessed by laboratory tests, including hydraulic conductivity and shear strength tests.
  • Copper slag blasting edia/grit - is manufactured of the granulated slag of copper refineries, and used for blast-cleaning of metal surface.
  • Copper slag has also gained popularity in the building industry for use as a fill material.
  • Contractors may also use copper slag in place of sand during concrete construction.
  • Copper slag can also be used as a building material, formed into blocks.
  • Copper slag is widely used in the sand blasting industry and it has been used in the manufacture of abrasive tools.
  • In general, the spent copper slag is suitable to be used as a fill material for land reclamation.
  • One of the primary advantages to copper slag is the low risk it poses to health and the environment.
  • Copper slag also has a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it an effective option in concrete, or as a fill material under the roadway.
  • Some studies were carried out using grained copper slag as fine aggregate and fine powder copper slag for partial replacement of cement.
  • The copper slag, the by product of the melting plant of Lac, north Albania can be used successfully as Portland cement substitute in the cement industry.
  • Copper slag is one of the materials that is considered as a waste material which could have a promising future in construction industry as partial substitute of either cement or aggregates.
  • The spent copper slag samples originated from the raw copper slag that was imported from various countries to Singapore for reuse as abrasive material for removing rust and marine deposit from ships.
  • The raw copper slag had particle sizes ranging from
    micrometres to larger than 1 cm in diameter.
  • Industrial sludge is generated at a rate of 100 metric tons/day, from a copper slag recycling plant.
  • Copper slag is widely used as an abrasive media to remove rust, old coating and other impurities in dry abrasive blasting due to its
    high hardness (6-7 Mohs), high density (2.8-3.8 g/cm3) and low free silica content.
  • Sterlite Industries (India) finds a huge potential for the use of copper slag in concrete applications.
  • Copper slag is a by-product of copper production from copper ore.
  • For every ton of copper produced about 2.2 ton of slag is generated.
  • At present, across the world around 33 tonnes of slag is generated while in India three copper producers Sterlite, Birla Copper and Hindustan Copper produce around 6-6.5 tonnes of slag at different sites.
  • Used copper slag is the largest source of waste from shipyards and refineries.
  • Each year, some 300,000 tonnes are used for abrasive blasting at shipyards, during which the copper slag grit breaks into smaller particles that are contaminated or mixed with rust and paint.
