Sustainability of Iron and Steel Factory Wastes in Cement
This study reports the results of an experimental study conducted to determine sustainability development of composite cements manufactured with Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) Slag and Blast Furnace Slag (BFS) combination. The overall objective of this work is to determine whether a combination of BOF slag and BFS might be processed into a sufficiently cementitious material to produce Composite Portland Cement (CPC). Three group of cement are produced. First group is BOF slag, second group is BFS and the last group is the mixture of BOF slag and BFS. Physical properties and Alkali Silica Reaction (ASR) of those groups are evaluated. Result of BOF slag CPC showed the maximum ASR expansion. However; results of BFS composite portland cements showed minimum ASR expansion value.
