Building materials production generates a large amount of harmful substances poisoning the atmosphere. One of the major sources polluting cities environment is metallurgical industry. Concentration is one of the most important processes where empty components are extracted from the rock. During ore concentration, an increasing number of man-made wastes are generated; they pollute the air and huge area around the factories discharging these wastes. This reduces both space for people to live and place for cities to function and develop. It should be noted that metal production enterprises have accumulated billions of tons of industrial wastes (tailings) that include a large amount of iron-containing materials and rocks; these can be used as building materials, for example, when preparing fine-grained concrete as a mineral powder as well as in construction of roads, houses, in paint production, etc.
