Slag foaming has been studied systematically for more than 50 years. The main reason for such interest is a big number of benefits of slag foaming technology in steelmaking, especially for the process in an electric arc furnaces (EAF). There are 2 types of reactions which can be used for slag foaming. The most famous one is the carbon oxidation by oxygen dissolved in metal. Another type of slag foaming reactions is a decomposition of carbonates or other substances, which can produce gas at high temperature. However, it can be concluded that the slag foaming with carbonates is not usual in steelmaking practice. The purpose of the present work is to study the energy effect of slag foaming caused by carbonates decomposition.
