WARNING: The number of full time equivalent lobbyists declared by this organisation are extraordinarily high and may therefore have been over-declared. EUROSLAG is the European association of organizations and companies concerned with all aspects of manufacturing and utilization of ferrous slag products. The association deals with promotion of slag as a product, enables exchange of information and research as well as facilitates the interaction with governing bodies. Ferrous slag is the by-product of iron and steel manufacturing. It arises from the conversion of ores to iron, hot iron to steel, from melting scrap in an electric arc furnace or from the subsequent treatment of crude steel. Each year, about 45 million tonnes of ferrous slag iron and steel slag is generated in Europe.
Okay, this may be slightly exaggerated, but after a bunch of policy-heavy presentations, suddenly the situation became crystal clear. Was the agricultural use of ferrous slag going to be allowed to continue? What would be the classification of the slag? And so on. This legislation created an ambiguity over the status of slag between classifying it, as a waste or as a by-product, that the European industry has been battling over ever since.
However, implementation often fails due to the political framework conditions, which unnecessarily restrict the use of slag-based products. This range of topics was the focus of the discussions and lectures at the Euroslag conference, which was attended by participants from 29 countries — among them manufacturers and marketers of ferrous slags, representatives from politics, administrative bodies and associations, as well as scientists. In order to be able to implement the findings from theory and practice as effectively as possible, Euroslag continued the format of the panel discussion with political decision-makers that had been introduced at the last conference in Metz in The key concerns of the organisers were the restoration of the balance between the justified demands with respect to soil and water protection on the one hand, and the promotion of the circular economy and resource conservation through the use of ferrous slags on the other.
Unconditional love, excellent communication, and unwavering support. On top of this we are going to have our first child on April 12th and I feel very alone. Yeah man, don't doubt someone who was a missionary will try to convert you. Maybe it won't be a big deal. Do you really want to wait two years to enjoy sex, fun, happiness, intimacy with someone. But the idea of marrying my husband felt right from almost the get-go and, my patriarchal blessing made so much more sense. What a joke for an archaeologist.
