Ferrous slags are valuable co-products of iron and steelmaking. Blast Furnace Slag (BFS) is composed of the non-metallic components removed from iron ore during processing in a blast furnace. It consists mostly of silica, alumina, and lime. Steel Furnace Slag (SFS) is composed of lime flux and impurities removed from iron during processing in a steel furnace. Typically SFS is primarily composed of lime, iron oxide and silica. Both BFS and SFS have unique physical and chemical properties that make them particularly well suited to a variety of uses in construction and civil engineering projects..
