Ecofer has achieved excellent results in its latest R&D project

Ecofer has developed with partner an unprecedented fine fraction crushing technology, combined with chemical treatment, deactivates active free lime from slag sand. In this way, the slag sand can be recycled and reused to replace the cement clinker used in cement production.

The cement clinker is produced by burning lime. This results in huge CO2 emissions. By replacing the 1 ton cement clinker with slag sand, a 0.5 ton C02 emission saving can be achieved.

China, for example, produces around 160 million tonnes of steel slag as a by-product of steel production, which could be recycled as a whole to cement production. In this way, China would reduce its CO 2 emissions from cement production by 80 million tonnes per year.
