New project idea: TECOTON (ICON – Textile reinforcement makes ecological concrete possible)

Textile reinforcement makes ecological concrete possible

Will you participate?

SIM has a new ICON project proposal ‘TECOTON (Textile reinforcement makes ecological concrete possible)’.

To make the building elements even more durable, it will also be investigated whether they can be made with alkali activated cement instead of Portland cement. For this purpose concrete will be developed that has sufficient flow but also a number of other positive properties such as shrink resistance and fire resistance. More info via this link (in dutch).   

Request for partners

Interested to participate as a project partner or in the industrial advisory board of the SBO-part?

As from the beginning of this year, VLAIO advises an industrial advisory board for the SBO-part of an ICON (not obligatory but it makes the project proposal stronger).

If you want more information on this project idea or you are interested in joining the project consortium as part of the user group, please contact ir. Anneke Hunninck:
