Slag is a non metallic co-product, produced in the iron (BF) and steelmaking (BOF and EAF) process. Slag has been commonly utilized on a broad scale ever since these processes were first taken into use. Besides economical benefits, environmental requirements will enhance the need for further product development work concerning the properties of slag in the future, in order to observe the principle of sustainable development. Today, one of the important indicators of sustainable steel industry is quantity of slag (production) and its utilization. This paper discuss the utilization of slag in different fields such as cement, heat and sound isolation, filtration, agriculture, tile and glass production and explain some of important researches in last 35 years which done in Esfahan Steel Co. (ESCo) of Iran.
