Summary and Info
The 26 peer-reviewed papers collected here together offer a plenitude of up-to-date information on “Geopolymers and Geocements: Low Environmentally Impact Ceramic Materials”. The papers are conveniently arranged into PREPARATION, CHARACTERIZATION, INDUSTRIALIZATION & APPLICATION.This special volume has also been published online in the series, “Advances in Science and Technology” Vol. 69 via www.scientific.net.The Congress is being documented in 10 topical volumes. This eighth volume covers preparation, characterization, industrialization, and application of the two kinds of ceramics. The keynote lecture is The Status and Prospect of Research and Application of Alkali-Activated Materials, by Pavel Krivenko (binders and materials, Kiev National U. of Civil Engineering and Architecture, Ukraine). Another 25 papers consider such topics as geopolymer binders in composite cements and ceramic-like materials, the role of alkaline cations in geomaterial foams, new geopolymers based on electric arc furnace slag, bond strengths in geopolymer and cement concretes, and recycling industrial wastewater by immobilizing it in geopolymer cement.
