Chromite ore processing residue (COPR) is an industrial waste produced in the chromic salts production process and contains a small portion of leached Cr(VI), which is highly toxic and is listed as a hazardous waste. The immobilization of COPR using a blast furnace slag-based geopolymer has been investigated in this study. The optimum parameters for preparing the blast furnace slag-based geopolymer using an orthogonal experiment were obtained. COPR was used to replace the amount of blast furnace slag for the preparation of the geopolymer. The COPR-bearing blast furnace slag-based geopolymer has potential application as a construction material and for geological disposal. The combined effect ..
