TITLE: Going beyond traditional cements: options for sustainable, designed-for-purpose, “Made in Belgium” binders


In the Ghrante project of SIM-Mares, non-ferrous metallurgy slag is valorised as inorganic polymers and hybrid binders. These can be used in fire-resistant tunnel panels, sound absorbing porous tunnel panels and in next generation, more silent, concrete roads. This project is used as an example, with references to other SIM-Mares projects.
