Each of the product and services which carry the Life logo meet or exceed at least
one of the three benchmarks that we have set in the key areas of carbon reduction,
non-primary material content and Sustainable Drainage Systems.
The sustainable contribution of each Life solution

Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS). GGBS is a by-product slag material from the iron and steel industry, which substitutes cement to significantly reduce the carbon content per tonne of concrete products.
A fine powder by-product that can replace a proportion of cement within concrete mixes. GGBS provides better workability, making placing and compacting easier. With considerable sustainabilty benefits, GGSB also lowers early-age temperature rise, reducing the risk of thermal cracking in large pours.
In addition to the environmental advantage, concretes incorporating slag have greatly enhanced chemical resistance particularly to chlorides and sulfates and are especially advantageous in a marine environment, resistance to Alkali Silica Reaction (ASR) is also enhanced.
The GGBS supplied by Aggregate Industries is produced by Holcim in Bremen, Germany to BS EN 15167-1:2006
