Life cycle assessment to evaluate the environmental performance of new construction material from stainless steel slag
Andrea Di Maria, Muhammad Salman, Maarten Dubois & Karel Van Acker
Many new opportunities are explored to lower the CO2 emissions of the cement industry. Academic and industrial researches are currently focused on the possibility of recycling steel production residues in the cement industry, in order to produce new “low-carbon” binders for construction materials. The purpose of this paper is to assess the environmental benefits and costs of steel residue valorisation processes to produce a new binder for construction materials.
