Of the annual consumption of refractories (~ 3 million tonnes in Europe), a small quantity is absorbed by the processes themselves (e.g. incorporation in the slag in steel production). The remainder is recovered during servicing and refurbishment of the process equipment. This leads to a major difficulty – what to do with this considerable mass of « refractory waste »?
Firstly, consider the generally advanced arguments in favour of recycling and the barriers which slow down its exploitation.
