Harsco has won a USD 25 million a contract for Steel Slag Processing in Slovenia.

Harrisburg (PA), USA – Harsco Corporation has announced its expansion into Slovenia under a new five-year contract expected to generate more than USD 25 million in new revenues over its duration. Harsco will assume responsibility for the stainless steel slag processing and commercialization of slag co-products produced by the Acroni steel mill.

Harsco will apply its environmental solutions technologies to recover valuable metal content from the slag and will also take responsibility for the residual slag material. The company expects to sell the recovered metal for re-use in steel production or through its cooperative partners with which the Company has relationships in this region, such as Scholz AG. Harsco will also assume responsibility for the steel slag processing of the slag stockpiled at the mill, estimated to be in the area of 300000 tonnes of material. Slag is classified by the Slovenian Ministry of the Environment as an inert material and is included on the country’s “green list” for environmentally sustainable commercial utilization.

Work under the contract is scheduled to begin in the latter half of 2010, and will include the construction of an onsite slag processing and metal recovery facility that will be owned and operated by Harsco.
