TOGETHER (ICON)

TOGETHER aims to develop and produce environmentally friendly concrete building products with high chemical resistance for the agricultural and chemical industry. The products will incorporate secondary resources from Flemish industries.

TOGETHER is a logical addition to the running SIM Mares projects, because it will bring more understanding on how to improve the durability of concrete with high content of metallurgical mineral products, with regard to direct chemical attacks. This makes the concrete suitable for applications in aggressive chemical environments.

Research Program overview

The MaRes Program is about recycling of ‘Materials from solid and liquid industrial process Residues’, and aims at creating and demonstrating an operational, flexible toolbox to recover metals and valorize residual matrix into building materials.
