Unwanted solid substances released as a result of processes from industrial plants or various production mills are called solid waste, which is also known as ‘slag’. Today, the evaluation of these wastes has a great importance in terms of economic concerns and environmental pollution.

Ferrochrome slag, released during the production of Elazig Etikrom Facility over the last 40 years has exceeded 1 million tons and awaits to be evaluated. In this study, a series of tests about the availability of ferrochrome slag in brick production were conducted and the results are presented showing the availability of brick production using slag.
