Özet

Steelmaking slag is a good alternative material for the fixation of CO2 gas as precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) that are of used in many industrial applications such as paint, plastic, medical and so on. Therefore, the experimental conditions for production of PCC from steelmaking slag produced in Iskenderun Steelmaking Industry were determined via indirect carbonation process. At first, the influences of acid concentration, liquid-to-solid (L/S) ratio, particle size, reaction time and temperature on the dissolution of Ca from steelmaking slag were investigated, respectively. We determined that all parameters had strong effects on the dissolution of Ca from steelmaking slag except for the reaction time. Also, the effects of Na/CH3COO ratio, CO2 flow rate, reaction temperature and time on the precipitation of Ca ions as PCC particles were investigated. The properties of PCC were determined using chemical, SEM, XRD and particle size analyses. Furthermore, non-reacted CO2 left from the carbonation reactor was stored in the lab-scale gasometer tank for the re-use in that process.
