Granella®: from waste to finished product

Leader in steel production for the building sector, since 1998 Pittini Group has been improving its production process by transforming steel slag into a new product: Granella®. It can replace natural aggregates in the production of bituminous coverings and in cement conglomerates.

Its physical and mechanical features allow Granella® to outclass precious aggregates such as basalt, diabase and porphyry, normally used to produce special high-performance road surfacing.

Granella® has the following benefits:

  1. Creating safer roads by contributing to the increase in pavements’ grip;
  2. Completely eco-friendly: an industrial by-product is used instead of other raw materials.
