Slovenia: SIJ Acroni, part of SIJ Group, has acquired the operations and equipment for processing slag from Harsco Minerali for an undisclosed sum. Previously the company used Harsco Minerali for the service, according to the Slovenian Press Agency. SIJ Acroni has taken over both Harsco's activity and equipment, and invited all Harsco employees to join the company.

Harsco Minerali processed 0.2Mt of slag for SIJ in 2017. The company mainly processed old slag deposits but new slag is created on an on-going basis during steel production. The processing products are used as inputs for asphalt and other engineering materials including insulation, and some products can be recycled for steel production. Harsco Minerali reported sales of Euro12m in 2016 and a net loss of Euro0.22m.

"By taking over the equipment and operations of Harsco Minerali we shall process what was once waste material into a by-product that we shall use in the subsequent production process or sell as an input material for construction, road construction, and environment remediation," said SIJ Acroni managing director Branko ┼Żerdoner.
