Reddy, K.R., A. Gopakumar, and J.K. Chetri.
Reviews in Environmental Science and Bio/Technology 18:127-152(2019)

Iron and steel slags possess characteristics suitable for engineering applications, which are described in this article along with several engineering application examples and challenges/ opportunities to develop practical applications. Ongoing research is exploring the use of steel slag and biochar-amended soil to develop a biogeochemical landfill cover to sequester fugitive gas emissions such as CH4, CO2 and H2S from municipal solid waste landfills and attain zero-emissions landfill.
