  • Growth is related to steel market trend, and therefore was witnessed in the Middle East market; but Asia, in particular China, counts as the largest ferrous slag market
  • Material tends to be processed locally i.e. with plants traditionally close to the source
  • The generally low value per tonne is inevitably a factor that reduces the profitability of shipping over large distance of most ferrous slag
  • Shipping over large distance is viable where the end use of the ferrous slag has a higher value such as that of BF Slag produced for GGBS cement production.
