Considering the valuable compositions and potential environmental hazardousness of titanium-bearing blast furnace slag (BFS), developing efficient and green approaches to utilization of BFS is highly desired for resource economization and environmental protection. In the past decades, many attempts have been adopted to efficiently reuse BFS, and significant advances in understanding the fundamental features and the development of efficient approaches have been made. In this review, we have provided a comprehensive overview of the latest progress on efficient utilization BFS, and discussed the mechanism and characteristics of various approaches, along with their application prospects. In particular, the approaches of extraction and enrichment of titanium-bearing phases from BFS are highlighted due to their high availability of titanium resources. This systemic and comprehensive review may benefit to design new and green utilization route with high efficiency and low cost.
