Alkali-Activated Slag Cement Concrete

This article examines the development and use of alkali-activated slag cement concrete (AASCC). As a sustainable alternative to portland cement concrete, AASCC can be manufactured at a lower cost, and the energy and emissions associated with production are low. AASCC is highly durable, though it has some limitations regarding workability, setting time, and shrinkage. It is a versatile alternative that should be studied further.
