To develop novel bio-mimetic technology for enzyme-based microbial carbonate precipitation through the revalorization of industrial waste as raw materials, in order to produce eco-efficient environmental cement.

Objectives

The overall aim of the project is to develop an industrially suitable cost-effective biomimetic process for the production of Eco-Cement. The project will have a research, development and demonstrative character with the following scientific and technical objectives:

To investigate the use of cement industry wastes, specifically solid alkaline industrial wastes, as raw materials for the production of Eco-Cement.

To investigate the biomimetic process for the production of Eco-Cement.

To test the Eco-Cement technology with a pilot-scale trial.

To evaluate the potential for energy saving, waste revalorization and reduction of emissions of Eco-Cement.
