Steelmaking slag is an alkaline solid waste mainly consists of oxides of calcium, iron, silica, magnesium, and aluminum. With a large volume in production and special chemical compositions, it is challengeable in utilization for industry. In this study, hot-poured steelmaking slag was used to prepare ceramics by mixing with kaolin and quartz. After heating at 1150-1250°C, the ceramics were well sintered. XRD analysis showed the major mineral phases were anorthite and pyroxene. SEM images showed that the new crystal particles were uniformly formed and distributed. EDS and ICP also were used for chemical analysis and mechanism discussion.
