Aspects related to a two-step aqueous process for steel converter slag carbonation are discussed in more detail, since a continuous laboratory-scale setup has been constructed and is currently under further development at Finnish universities. Even though the current issues related to product quality can be resolved, the process is still in such a small scale that it mainly serves the demonstration purposes for mineral carbonation technologies.
