Associated research grant:14/50948-3 - INCT 2014: advanced eco-efficient technologies in cementitious products, AP.TEM


The FAPESP project, Advanced eco-efficient technologies in cement based products (AECem) (2014/50948-3), focuses on the opportunities for increased efficiency in cement based products. With a wide-range area of research, the project is focused in reducing the emission of greenhouse gases, use of energy, consumption of water and the need for natural resources of cement based products through life cycle analysis. The main objective of the project is to develop and disseminate knowledge and technologies that contribute to increase the eco-efficiency of cementitious products.The exchange proposed in this third edition of SPRINT, 2018 will engage the collaboration of Prof. Holmer Savastano Junior, Principal Investigator of the project process 2014/50948-3, and staff of the Research Nucleus on Materials for Biosystems (BioSMat) with Dr Bhavna Sharma (Bath PI) and staff in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering's BRE Centre for Innovative Construction Materials (BRE CICM) who have expertise in non-conventional and cement-based materials (Ball, Calabria-Holley, Paine, Walker). The AECem project will benefit from the exchange activities through additional expertise in microstructural scale properties and durability strategies of cement based products. The proposed collaboration will contribute to the ongoing FAPESP project and lead to future collaboration in development of innovative methods for processing and manufacture of eco-efficient cementitious materials.
