#16: Environmentally Driven Geopolymer Cement Applications

Environmentally Driven Geopolymer Cement Applications.
by Joseph Davidovits

Invited Paper, Geopolymer 2002 International Conference, October 28-29, Melbourne, Australia

Environmentally driven geopolymer applications are based on the implementation of (K,Ca)-Poly(sialate-siloxo) / (K,Ca)-Poly(sialate-disiloxo) cements. In industrialized countries (Western countries) emphasis is put on toxic waste (heavy metals) and radioactive waste safe containment. On the opposite, in emerging countries, the applications relate to sustainable development, essentially geopolymeric cements with very low CO2 emission. Both fields of application are strongly dependent on politically driven decisions.
