The development of science and technology makes new demands on the properties of materials and dictates the creation of new substances with improved properties necessary to improve the technical and economic indicators of production. On metallurgical, mining and concentrating industries there is an acute problem of waste disposal. Mostly metallurgical slags are used as an inexpensive additive in building materials. Recently, their unique chemical properties have attracted attention to the production of materials for use in catalysis as adsorbents, catalysts, or a source of active substances . Studies  showed that metallurgical slag from the production of ferrous metals has adsorption properties and can be used to clean polluted water. It was discovered  that metallurgical slag can also be used as a carrier for the synthesis of catalysts in complete oxidation reactions in order to purify CO waste.
The continuous progress of industrialization and population growth leads to high CO2 emissions. In this regard, the demand for catalysts and carriers for catalysts is growing . However, the synthesis of catalyst carriers based on technogenic raw materials requires the development of new technological methods of production. The solution to this issue may be the production of catalyst carriers from natural raw materials and industrial wastes by powder metallurgy methods.
In the production of catalyst carriers, the issue of phase composition, sintering and physicochemical processes during firing is of particular importance, since they determine mainly the operational properties of products.
Based on the data of X-ray phase, differential thermal and thermogravimetric analyzes, the areas of stability of the studied samples were determined during heat treatment, which allowed us to synthesize carriers with specified characteristics.
