ISIJ International, Special Issue on
“Challenge and progress of process technology and fundamental research
for the promotion of lime dissolution into slag”

 In the recent steelmaking process, improvement of rate and efficiency of hot metal pre-treatment is the issue of great importance, which can be realized by promotion of lime dissolution into the slag. Nowadays, remarkable developments have been made on seeds research for crushing of surrounding or boundary layer formed on lime by decomposed gas and ultrasonic vibration as well as fundamental research for thermodynamics and thermos-physical properties of related phases such as 2CaO・SiO2 solid solution and forming slag including elucidation of the lime dissolution mechanism.

 Based on these recent trends in this field, this special issue aims to widely discuss the recent findings and call general reviews on process technology and fundamental research for the promotion of lime dissolution into slag
