Ferrochrome slag is a waste material obtained from the manufacturing of high carbon ferrochromium alloy. This slag is formed as a liquid at 1700 °C and its main components are SiO 2, Al 2 O 3 and MgO. Additionally it consists of chrome, ferrous/ferric oxides and CaO.
The ferrochrome plant will be brutal for the roads in and around the city. There will be 234 incoming trucks every day carrying heavy loads of ore from the Ring of Fire. Outgoing there will be 167 trucks per day carrying slag, waste and ferrochrome (much to Pittsburgh).
