Project duration: 1 January 2016 – 31 December 2018


The main objective of the project is to use Petrit-T, a high-quality industrial by-product from sponge iron manufacturing with little current utilization, as an inorganic binder raw material to yield geopolymer-based materials. This ceramic-like material has multiple uses in many applications including concrete elements, foamed concrete, thermal insulation material, and as a low-temperature ceramic.
