DUSC inspiration and demonstration event

DUSC inspiratie & demonstratie event uitnodiging

Performance-oriented circular concrete with reprocessed copper slag

Almost every day in the media, we are confronted with the environmental impact of our society. Construction activities also play a role in this, certainly for building materials that are used massively such as concrete. The combination of circularity and concrete technology makes it possible to develop performance-oriented concrete applications with a considerably smaller ecological footprint. Mechanical and durability properties of the concrete continue to prevail.

During this event, you will be introduced to the results of the DUSC project ‘Durability of MFS-slag Concrete’. You will learn how circular concrete with reprocessed copper slag is conceived and which mechanical and durability properties are achieved. We will also show demonstration products. In short, you can get plenty of inspiration about circular concrete. The event is free of charge and registering is possible on the website:


13:00-13:30: Registration & welcome rolls
13:30-14:10: Welcome, challenges and project results (UGent)
14:10-15:15: Presentation of the technology by the companies (Aurubis, RSF, Van Pelt, Sika)
