Papers presented at the symposium reflect an increasing recognition of the role of steelplant slags in their various forms as acceptable alternative materials to naturally occuring rock for use in concrete construction, highway and airport construction, bituminous pavements, manufacture of concrete masonry blocks, railroad ballast, sewerage filter medium, manufacture of cement, as an alumina source in the glassmaking industry and various other uses. Steel furnace slags are also being recycled to blast furnaces as a flux and source of manganese. Slag utilisation in this manner is contributing to the conservation of our natural resources and environment. /TRRL/
