PEREIRA, Ana Carolina Callegario et al. lmaking slag to reducing the solubility and leaching of manganese in contaminated areas. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2014, vol.44, n.2, pp.269-275. ISSN 0103-8478.

Steelmaking slag is a waste of steel production and has owned corrective soil acidity and may consequently reduce the mobility of trace elements. The research aimed the capacity of industrial waste steelmaking slag to reduce the solubility and lixiviation of Mn in contaminated soil. In the Soil Pollution Laboratory of the UFRRJ (Seropédica-RJ), leaching experiments were carried using three different residues contaminated with Mn, and two doses of the inertizant residues steelmaking slag. In the columns were applied a known and constant volume of water, established to simulate the maximum precipitation occurred in the last 17 years, in the region where the residue was collected. The highest dose of steelmaking slag (6%) reduced the Mn solubility below the maximum allowed by ABNT, for G1, G2 and Ge, and the treatment with 6% steelmaking slag + barriers chemical was the most effective in reducing the leaching of Mn in all groups. Therefore, the results showed the efficiency of steelmaking slag in the reduction of Mn solubility and lixiviation in all residues.
