The converter slag can be used to remove phosphate ion into the form of solid state from the wastewater. This research aims to evaluate the change of pH, alkalinity, leaching of positive ion in the wastewater and the removal of phosphate from the initial condition of wastewater. The change of pH was abruptly increased upto pH 11 for the initial condition of pH from 7.0 to 8.5 fer 0.5 unit of pH. The alkalinity was steadily increased from 10 hours of reaction time not same as pH increase. The removal of phosphate was very effective till 10 hours of reaction then it was slow after that time. The positive ion, magnesium ion was leached from the concentration of 2.0 mg/L to 4.3mg/L at the reaction time of 27 hours and 36 hours. Therefore, converter slag can be used to remove the phosphate in the form of Struvite from the wastewater.
