Danieli Procome attends a meeting about steel gravels and slags
Technical staff of Danieli Procome has attended the “1st National meeting about application and innovation in steel gravels and slag”, which took place in Madrid (Spain).
This transformation process is well known by Danieli, which has developed Ecogravel: the slag coming from the EAF becomes an industrial aggregate to be used in bituminous conglomerates as much as in cement mixes. Future approaches defended during the conference as “circular economy”, the recycling and reuse of the material are the base of Ecogravel where the EAF slag turns into a product that provides environmental benefits and financial profits.
In addition to attending the technical conference, Danieli Procome’s staff has also visited the CEDEX test laboratory. There, the pavements made with industrial aggregates are tested under real conditions of use, obtaining a very good result during trials.
The meeting has been organized by PLATEA (Technological platform of Spanish steel) and by Fundacion UNESID (Association of steel production companies), with the support of CEDEX (Centre of work publics experimentation and studies).
