low CO2 footprint & reduced wastes
The new ReActiv technologies will modify the properties of Bauxite Residue, transforming into a reactive material suitable for new, low CO2 footprint, cement products. In this manner ReActiv proposes a win-win scenario for both industrial sectors; reducing wastes and CO2 emissions respectively.
About the REACTIV project
The objective of the project is to produce cements with a replacement of 30% of the clinker by modified Bauxite Residue. Therefore, the cement industry can potentially consume the total production of the modified bauxite residue in Europe.
In ReActiv modification will be made to both the alumina production and the cement production side of the chain, in order to link them through the new ReActiv technologies.
The latter will modify the properties of the Industrial Residue, transforming into a reactive material (with pozzolanic or hydraulic activity) suitable for new, low CO2 footprint, cement products. In this manner ReActiv proposes a win-win scenario for both industrial sectors (reducing wastes and CO2 emissions respectively).
