VITO searched for a suitable procedure to valorise steel slag for recycling firm Recmix in Genk. Together with researchers from Recmix, it was decided to opt for the carbstone technique, for which VITO had already cooperated with the Walloon company Recoval. Using this technique, steel slag is repurposed into cheap and durable construction materials.

We had a residue stream of steel slag, but no suitable solution for it. Together with VITO, we successfully performed laboratory tests on an industrial scale. The carbstone is a satisfying result.
