Associated research grant:12/51467-3 - Agroindustrial wastes and their potential use as appropriate materials for housing and infraestructure (Agrowaste), AP.TEM


The combination of both lines of research on agro-industrial residues (pozzolan ashes and cellulosic fibres) is virtually incipient in technical bibliography. The use of regional agro-industrial wastes is a constructive way to economize energy in transport and for a more simplified logistics to attend the global civil construction market. Nevertheless, there are currently significant technical and scientific challenges cannot be carried out without a systematic approach for some reasons (mainly geographical distance between the both groups). Therefore, this proposal is important to establish systematic scientific and technical bases in sustainable building materiais. Results and innovations expected are: (1) the development of regional industrial wastes as pozzolan addition for commercial cement manufacture (for example in precast cement based components) and (2) the production of more sustainable and durable fibre-cement elements (such as corrugated and flat sheets containing vegetable and pulp fibres as the reinforcing phase). It is necessary to state that the viable production of the so called "new technology" NT fibre- cements is still under development in the Brazilian market and requires a continued improvement of the appropriate raw materiais, processing and performance of the final product.
