Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GBFS) is an industrial by-product from the steel-manufacturing process. It is obtained through rapid cooling of molten iron ore slag, which creates a hydraulic material that is naturally cementitious and high in calcium silicate hydrates (C-S-H), a compound that increases the strength and durability of concrete. The GBFS is ground at Holcim NZ’s Low Carbon Cement Import and Distribution Facility in Auckland to produce a Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS) product. ENVIROCore 100 is a supplementary cementitious material available in bulk.

This EPD presents a ‘cradle-to-gate’ assessment of the environmental impacts of ENVIROCore 100. It covers from by-product collection in Japan, transportation to the import terminals in NZ, and ends with regional depot operations. The life cycle assessment provides quantitative, objective and third-party verified data, which Holcim NZ is able to utilize to continuously improve its products and processes.

ENVIROCore 100 meets the requirements of AS3582.2:2016 Supplementary Cementitious Materials, Part 2: Slag – Ground Granulated Blast Furnace.
