This investigation was undertaken to characterize and evaluate the TCLP (Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure) behavior of sodium-iron-silicate slags. The TCLP is the only regulatory leaching protocol used in the United States to determine whether metallurgical slag material can be disposed of as non-hazardous waste. Synthetic slags of several compositions were prepared from reagent powders and doped with various concentrations of impurities. The slags were heated to 1200°C then cooled at a controlled temperature profile. The TCLP leachate generated from the slag was analyzed and associations were made to the slag bulk chemistry, mineralogy, and cooling history. Through this the leachable phases and behaviors of the slag were determined.
