    The aim of the present research work is to investigate the possibility of adding steel slag, a by-product of the conversion of iron to steel process, n the raw meal for the production of Portland cement clinker. Two samples of raw meals were prepared, one with ordinary raw materials, as a eference sample ((PC)Ref), and another with 10.5% steel slag ((PC)S/S). Both raw meals were sintered at 1450 ◦C. The results of chemical and

    ineralogical analyses as well as the microscopic examination showed that the use of the steel slag did not affect the mineralogical characteristics

    f the so produced Portland cement clinker. Furthermore, both clinkers were tested by determining the grindability, setting times, compressive trengths and soundness. The hydration products were examined by XRD analysis at 2, 7, 28 and 90 days. The results of the physico-mechanical ests showed that the addition of the steel slag did not negatively affect the quality of the produced cement.

    . Introduction

    Waste utilization is an attractive alternative to disposal in hat disposal cost and potential pollution problems are reduced r even eliminated along with the achievement of resource con- ervation. Nevertheless, the utilization strategy must be coupled ith environmental and energy considerations to use available aterials most efficiently. The traditional way to utilize met-

    llurgical slags in cementing materials is to partially replace ortland cement, which usually results in a lower early strength nd longer setting times. Presence of activator(s) can accelerate he break-up of structure and hydration of slags [1].

    Today, most metallurgical slags are used as aggregates for dif- erent applications, and only the ground granulated blast furnace

    lag is used for a partial Portland cement replacement. The par- ial replacement may decrease the early strength, but increase he later strength and improve microstructure and durability

    f hardened Portland cement and concrete very significantly 2].

    Steel slag is a by-product of the conversion of iron to steel rocess and it presents differences depending on the raw mate- ials and process. Fifty million tons per year of steel slag are roduced as a residue in the world [3]. In Europe every year early 12 million tons of steel slags are produced. Owing to the ntensive research work during the last 30 years, today about 5% of the produced steel slags are used on qualified fields f application. But the remaining 35% of these slags are still umped [4].

    Because the chemical composition of steel slags is ighly variable, the mineral composition of steel slag also aries. Olivine, merwinite, C3S, C2S, C4AF, C2F, RO phase CaO–FeO–MnO–MgO solid solution) and free-CaO are com- on minerals in steel slag. Its chemical composition consists of aO 45–60%, SiO2 10–15%, Al2O3 1–5%, Fe2O3 3–9%, FeO –20% and MgO 3–13% [5]. The presence of C3S, C2S, C4AF

    nd C2F endorses steel slag cementitious properties. However, he C3S content in steel slag is much lower than in Portland ement. Thus, the steel slag can be regarded as a weak Portland ement clinker.
