|On-Site Speaker (Planned)
The global steel industry generates about 84 million tonnes of steel slag annually, with Brazil accounting for about 5% of the generation of this waste. For it is a pozzolan, this material has great potential for use in the cementitious materials industry, however it is necessary a detailed study of their properties. The aim of this study was to characterize and compare the microstructure of the steel slag and blast furnace slag using XRD, SEM, AFM and EDX. The crystalline phases and the morphology of the compounds were compared. The results of the analyzes and the micrographs were presented and discussed about the application potential in cementitious materials.
