Side B Series – Simple, Smooth, Minimal.
Dross Tables are made from the recovery of steel slag, quartz and residual heat that form a large percentage of the waste by-products of the molten iron processing industry. These waste materials are put in a mould and baked into the heat that is dissipated from the steel furnace, requiring no new energy to create them. The process is unique to steel factories and has been invented through collaboration with factory workers.
More than 400 million tonnes of slag from the iron and steel industry is produced worldwide each year. The factory spends the equivalent of £60 /tonne/month to dump these materials into landfill. By utilising these materials into making value-added products, the most conservative estimate of additional revenue to the factory worker’s community would be around £5000/month. By choosing this table you would save around 10 kg of waste materials going into landfills.
