Routine determination of the total fluorine content of iron and steel slag for road building

Using iron and steel slag in road building can cause the fluorine compounds contained in the slag to enter the environment. Dominik Hahn, currently a PhD student in the Technical Chemistry department at the University of Koblenz- Landau, developed a method for the determination of fluorine content in slag using Combustion IC as part of his bachelor's thesis. For this, he was awarded the VDI research prize by Verein Deutscher Ingenieure Mittelrhein e. V. (the Association of German Engineers for the Middle Rhine region).
