Geopolymers and Hybrid Cements for Roads and Tunnels
GHRANTE targets the development of innovative, recyclable inorganic polymer-based materials based on slags from the non-ferrous metallurgy.
GHRANTE will develop:
(1) a full portfolio of properties and durability data for inorganic polymer-based materials, including proposals for performance-based assessment protocols, originating from a Ca-poor Fe-silicate slag (typical from the copper industry) and a Ca-rich Fe-silicate slag (typical from the lead industry) that will be used in
(2) value-added tyre/noise and rolling resistance reducing, with high skid resistance and durability and/or fire-resistant prototypes, made of hybrid cements and geopolymer for road, tunnel and building applications, employing cutting-edge/emerging technologies, such as additive manufacturing.
