SLN has just shipped 22,000 tonnes of slag to the United States. SLAND has just been sold and shipped by SLN to IMI, an American company specializing in the supply of raw materials. SLAND is a commercial product developed by SLN New Caledonian subsidiary, which is fully compatible with the circular economy.

SLN produces an average of 55,000 tonnes of ferronickel each year and 1.8 million tonnes of slag. Since only 10% of the slag produced was previously being sold on the local market, the company decided to seek out new export markets for this by-product. SLAND is particularly valuable because it can be used as a substitute for natural sand: its applications are very diverse, ranging from paint blasting, as in the case of IMI, to the manufacture of asphalt, road base courses, backfill or concrete. In some regions of the world, sand is becoming such a scarce raw material - its extraction is often synonymous with environmental degradation - that investment banks such as the World Bank are now refusing to finance projects involving the extraction of sand from beaches or lagoons.
