We recover, reclaim and recycle mineral by-products from industry, for the benefit of our customers and the environment.
Ground Granulated Blastfurnace Slag (GGBS) from Francis Flower is made from a by-product of iron manufacturing and is a high quality, environmentally friendly, low CO2 material used in the production of ready-mix and pre-cast concrete, cement-based formulations and soil stabilisation.
The manufacture of GGBS requires less than 20% of the energy and produces less than 10% of the CO2 emissions compared to Portland Cement production.
With GGBS able replace more than 70% of the Portland Cement content in a concrete mix, it significantly improves the environmental credentials of a mix, without compromising on quality.
