Iron and steel slag, also referred to as ferrous slag, are created by adding calcareous (or dolomite),  silica  sand , and  lime  to blast furnaces  to remove contaminants from iron ore,  and other ferrous feed resources and to reduce the heat conditions of iron and steel processing. Iron and steel slag is a by-product in the  method of steelmaking. It comprises of multiple abrasive particles during the smelting and refining by oxidizing contaminants, such as silicon, phosphorus, manganese , and sulfur in portland cement, and salts produced by the solvent reaction of these oxides.

In the construction industry , demand for iron and steel slag has risen primarily due to the high in demand for granulated  crushed slag, to acquire concrete when combined with portland cement. As well the increase for the construction sector is huge with population expansion. The increase in demand for slag as a cement will ultimately lead to better building expenditure on building projects and on the achievement of the industry's strategies to encourage slag as a construction material and, in turn, will boost market growth.
