Two points to consider regarding your request for information.
1) The analysis provided is not detailed enough for the
determination of potential uses for the slag material. For any
potential usage scenario, a detailed analysis (gross and trace
analysis) should be obtained and include both total and leachable
constituents present in a representative sample.
"Foundry" is mentioned and "alloy company". This information
gives no insights into specific processes or materials being
worked, and resulting constituents which may exist in the slag.
There could be a wide variation in the chemical nature of the slag
pending the alloy being produced and process used. Does the
company produce different metal products/alloys and as a result
different varieties of slag?
2) In considering potential uses for the material, one may wish to
separate uses where the material is placed directly into the
environment, from uses which may utilize the slag in a
manufacturing process as a raw material or otherwise may
incorporate the slag in a manner which may limit exposure to
environmental conditions. In the second scenario, some
consideration should be given to potential human exposure even if
environmental release is not an issue.
