Substituting high carbon footprint binders with carbon-negative alternatives, produced by treating industrial mineral waste with CO₂, to realise durable concrete products and materials for civil engineering applications.

About the project

The main aim of the CO2TREAT project is to design resource-efficient, low-carbon binder products for durable concrete and civil engineering applications by partially substituting Portland cement with secondary resources beneficiated by treatment with CO2
