|Abstract||The metals immobilization potential of freshly crushed (blast furnace and steel) slag fines was evaluated, where each media resembled USCS SP type soil with <5% passing the No. 200 (0.075 mm) sieve. Because of their granular nature, hardness, mineralogy and residual lime content, these media are quite reactive. Accordingly, their metals (immobilization) potential was evaluated using aqueous metal solutions (Cd, Cu, Pb, Ni, W, Se(IV), Se(IV), Zn) having target doses equivalent to 100 mg/kg to 100,000 mg/kg to the slag fines. After 30 days of mellowing, all samples were tested for pH, totals, toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP) and synthetic precipitation leaching procedure (SPLP) leaching behavior.|
