There's a reason why slag cement is the cement industry's material of choice.
Reducing the carbon impact of concrete is an important factor in construction material choice. Slag cement is a recovered material from the iron production process and because of this, reduces the environmental impact of concrete mixtures by decreasing carbon footprint, embodied energy and the use of non-renewable materials.
The use of slag cement conserves...
million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions
trillion BTUs of energy use
million metric tons of virgin materials
The Slag Cement Association is an organization of companies that produce and ship slag cement in the United States; these shipments represent over 95% of all slag cement used in U.S. concrete.
