Electric Arc Furnace Slag as a Paving Material - Phase I

Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) is interested in exploring the utilization of Electric Arc Furnace Slag (EAF) as an alternative for soil stabilization. This research initiative holds the potential to diminish the necessity for commercial stabilizing agents like hydrated lime or Portland cement, consequently contributing to a reduction in CO2 emissions and offering a sustainable solution for pavement construction in Nebraska. The application of slags for soil stabilization has become a prominent topic within the pavement community. It presents an opportunity to enhance pavement performance, leading to longer-lasting roads by improving soil engineering properties. Simultaneously, it addresses the growing accumulation of materials in landfills while reducing carbon emissions
