Mechanical Response of Geopolymer Foams to Heating—Managing Coal Gangue in Fire-Resistant Materials Technology

Kick-off meeting

The kick of meeting of the project took place on the first of December 2020 with all the partners making presentations on the work they have undertaken towards the implementation of the project.

Progress Meeting 06/2021

Smart-G project is well on track ! The partners gathered on a virtual meeting on the 14nth of June 2021 to make an overview of the project activities so far and discuss the upcoming steps. 

The project

SMART-G targets the production of light weight, fire resistant components for the construction industry from metallurgical and construction industrial residues. The different waste streams will be combined in the right proportions and with the addition of Ca, geopolymers can be developed at defined setting rates. As such a new value chain/business model will be developed having as final application the insulating panels which can used as nonflammable insulating materials for buildings or for concrete protection in tunnels.

This project has received funding from the ERAMIN 2 - Research & Innovation Programme on Raw Materials to Foster Circular Economy
