The cost of processing recycling slag is less than the purchase of new flux from the manufacturer .Many times this can amount to saving 50 percent or greater. In order to continue effective use of slag in the future, we realize the necessity of development for new applications and market reclamation to create the stable demand. Therefore the needs of recycling slag waste cannot be over emphasized for sustainable environmental, economic and industrial growth. The present paper summarizes the current application of slag the ferrous and non-ferrous slag, as well as recycling of salt fluxes in secondary smelting production. Fluxes often are selected to make slag to perform different functions at different stages of a process prior to final melting, hence Slag chemistries are adjusted to provide the proper melting point, viscosity, surface tension, conductivity, specific heat, density, or chemical properties for the particular metallurgical process.
