Domestically, dolomite as a refractory material was first introduced in 1954.D.O. It was used in their businesses. Today, it is used in all foundries working with the basic method for this purpose. When used as flux in the iron and steel industry, it is a very important raw material with the ability to ensure the transfer of unwanted empurities such as sulfur to the slag in addition to its slag-forming properties. In addition, it has been used extensively in the landscape sector in the last ten years.
