About this event

Geopolymer concrete is made by reacting aluminate and silicate-bearing materials with a caustic activator, such as fly ash or slag, from iron and metal production. It is a more sustainable alternative to Ordinary Portland Cement OPC, showing lower thermal energy and CO2 emissions across all concrete classifications. In fact, it is an environmentally superior concrete that could use up to 90% industrial by-product waste materials while producing up to 80% lower CO2 emissions. It is sustainable and energy efficient. Using geopolymer-enhanced materials in building envelopes, including hospitals, will directly relate to more environmentally sustainable buildings, reducing energy demands.
