ECO-CEMENT(FP7) New microbial carbonate precipitation

advertisement
ECO-CEMENT(FP7)
New microbial carbonate precipitation
technology for the production of high strength,
economical and Ecological Cement
Crystal formation on the surface
of B. subtilis cells by SEM
microscopy
EU contribution: ~1.6 Mio €
Total budget of the project: ~2.3
Mio €
Duration: 36 months
Starting date: 01/03/2011
Coordinator: Grupo Essentium (SP)
Partners: Fraunhofer (DE), CNR (IT),
Solintel (SP), DW EcoCo (IE) and
Neapolis University (CY).
Aim:
Develop novel bio-mimetic technology for enzyme-based
microbial
carbonate
precipitation
through
the
revalorization of industrial waste as raw materials, in
order to produce eco-efficient environmental cement.
Achievements:
None, as the project began on the 1st of March 2012.
Why does it matter?
This technology can reduce GHG emissions from cement
manufacturing by up to 11%, and reduction of 27% in
production cost compared to traditional cement.
Sustainable Cement Industry: Waste valorization of the
cement industry using bioreactor for production of new
cement.
