Studies on Construction + Hydraulics + Structures and Geotechnics

The aim of this project is to improve the CO2 capture by concrete and other cementitious materials in order to reduce the environmental impact of building industry.

This work has attracted interest from the international scientific community, namely from researchers from KU Leuven, Belgium, working on early-age carbonation of cementitious materials, with whom a collaboration is planned.

The CERIS team was also invited to integrate an international team, gathering partners from Poland, Spain and Italy, working on diverse fields related to CO2 storage and utilization (liquid fuels, polymeric materials and concrete).

A common proposal was prepared and submitted for international funding.

Finally, the research fellow supported by the CERIS grant proceeded in this research field as a PhD student.
