    The iron from the ferrosilicon can be recycled to make more ferrosilicon, the impure silica byproduct is not very useful for anything, and the only other things that remain is the calcium oxide that is contaminated by the iron.  I see where you are going.

    The waste products are not really useful, and have to be disposed of in some way.  That is unlike the electrolytic process, which is pretty clean.

    Warmest regards,
