Global Granulated Ground Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS) Market – Overview

Ground granulated blast-furnace slag, or GGBFS, is a by-product of iron making in a blast furnace. Most of it is made up of silicate and aluminosilicate from molten calcium that had to be regularly removed from the blast furnace. GGBFS slag is produced by pulverizing the granulated blast furnace slag that blast furnaces produce as a byproduct of the iron-making process. This hydraulic additive is widely used in raw concrete, as an admixture for Portland blast furnace slag cement, and in other applications.
