SOIL STABILISATION USING INTEGRATED DESIGN OF LOW CO2 ALTERNATIVE CEMENTITIOUS BINDERS

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

This research proposes a resource and energy efficiency opportunity in the cement industry, which is the main carbon emitter within concrete, by utilising industrial by-products from the steel industry to create a new cement and establish a circular economy between these two foundation industries. We need to rapidly and radically decarbonise the foundation industries in the UK, and we can do this by improving resource efficiency.
This project will take geopolymer technology and apply to soil stabilisation, whilst creating new skilled jobs in geotechnical fields and using waste material local to Teesside to remediate land on the freeport.
