Project name:

CDW-geopolymers (TBC)

Status: In Preparation
Creation date: 06-06-2017

Project objectives:

The enormous production of CDW connected with the destruction caused by the recent earthquakes in Central Italy (Marche-Umbria-Lazio) raised the necessity to address the question of reusing CDW for the creation of new  building materials. 

the project aims at demonstrating of producing these type of building products by substituting (>50% in weight) raw materials and components with recycled ones coming from CDW and other wastes

The possibility to use ceramic waste of different types and CDW as geopolymers  has been investigated in many studies (ref), creating the bases for the engineering of new building products- which could respond to the following needs applications:

-       paving blocks (external use)

-       paving tiles (internal use) eventually with a decorative surface

-       building modules for internal walls, with or without insulation components

-       building modules for walls with special purposes (fire barrier, earthquake resistence, light weight)
