“Geopolymer (Alternate Binder) Concrete” (Dr. Mary Christiansen – Assistant Professor - University of Minnesota Duluth). Geopolymer concrete - an innovative material that is characterized by long chains or networks of inorganic molecules - is a potential alternative to conventional portland cement concrete for use in construction. It relies on minimally processed natural materials or industrial byproducts to significantly reduce its carbon footprint, while also being very resistant to many of the durability issues that can plague conventional concrete. This presentation will briefly describes geopolymer concrete materials and explore some of their strengths, weaknesses, and potential applications.
The Minnesota Concrete Council is dedicated to advancing education, technical practice, scientific investigation and research into cast-in-place construction by organizing the efforts of its members for a non-profit public service. MCC was created to bring proven methods and new ideas together, and educate its members on how to improve the quality and use of concrete in our structures, and to educate decision-makers on the benefits of quality concrete construction.
