Summary : The recovery of solid wastes for the preparation of innovative composite materials not only represents an economic advantage, but also offers an ecological opportunity for the utilization of by-products which would otherwise be landfilled. Specifically, the reuse and recycling of waste lead to important savings of raw materials and energy, since these by-products, generally deriv from agricultural or industrial activities, are abundant in nature. Moreover, a reduction of the environmental and related sanitary impacts can be also achieved. For this reason, a recycling operation is fundamental for the improvement of the environmental sustainability, because these secondary raw materials become a resource that can be easily reused without the modification of the peculiar characteristics, in order to obtain new and performing composites, with a low specific weight, high durability, and long life cycle.

Summary : Ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) is a by-product of the iron-making process and because of its high calcium silicate content it has excellent cementious content and has been used in the construction industry for years as a replacement for ordinary Portland cement (OPC). GGBFS is also routinely used to limit the temperature rise in large concrete pours and is therefore a desirable material to use in mass concrete placements where control of temperatures is an issue. The more gradual hydration of GGBS cement generates both lower peak and less total overall heat than OPC. GGBFS was approved for use at a 70% replacement even though it is only allowed to use a maximum 25% instead of cement. It has a higher proportion of the strength-enhancing calcium silicate hydrates (CSH) than concrete made with only OPC, and a reduced content of free lime, which does not contribute to concrete strength.
