Title: The use of air cooled blastfurnace slag as an unbound aggregate in the construction industry : BACMI/Environment Agency joint guidelines
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This brief Environment Agency leaflet provides guidance on the use of air cooled blastfurnace salag as an unbound aggregate in the construction industry. Air cooled blastfurnace slag is a by product of the iron making process. BS 1047 recognises that under specific ground conditions such as poorly drained soils, bacterial or chemical action on slag and leachate can give rise to sulphides and other compounds that can be harmful if they enter the water environment. The guidance provided below has been designed to prevent such problems arising.
