After years of research and development, trial and error of molecular decomposing of ferric and copper slags, an environment friendly, cost effective solution for processing the slags has been made. The process follows decomposition on a molecule level, dividing of main ferric slags somponents: iron / hydroxide and silicate.Each extracted component then becomes a commodity: iron oxide (by heating iron hydroxide), used for various paing pigments or iron chloride for water purification. The other main component - silicon dioxide is complimented by controlled iron additive, with 12% iron as demanded by cement industry, can be reached with precision. 100% of the copper slags are thus recycled, processed. Although the iron oxide, which is generally difficult to produce, is the most valuable ingredient, the rest is also transformed to useable commodities. Waste is transformed to a commodity. Hence, companies possessing copper slags might have a positive outcome for their waste if they use the solution. Chemical and cement industries may benefit by procuring cheap copper slag, processing it and using half of it in their production and the rest supplying the global commodity market.
