Ground granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBFS) which is by-product of steel industry has been recycled as a cement admixture though the other steel slags are used as aggregates. In this study, the electric arc furnace slag (EAFS) was used as a cement admixture after the reduction of iron oxide in the slag at the interface of molten slag and water quenching. Consequently, the reformed EAFS (REAFS) had higher grindability than that of granulated blast furnace slag. And in mortar tests, the strength properties of specimens using REAFS were 98% of plain specimens of GGBFS upto 20% replacement ratio of GGBFS with REAFS.
