100,000 tonnes Geopolymer Concrete: world premiere

Toowoomba, Brisbane West Wellcamp airport, Australia #Wellcamp747

Australia, October 2015.Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport (BWWA), Toowoomba, Queensland, is Australia’s first greenfield public airport to be built in 48 years. BWWA became fully operational with commercial flights operated by Qantas Link in November 2014.

30 years after my invention of Geopolymer cement in USA, at Lone Star Industries (Pyrament cement), this project marks a very significant milestone in engineering – the world’s largest geopolymer concrete project, so far. BWWA was built with approximately 40,000 m3 (100,000 tonnes) of geopolymer concrete making it the largest application of this new class of concrete in the world. The geopolymer concrete developed by the company Wagners, known as Earth Friendly Concrete (EFC), was found to be well suited for this construction method due to its high flexural tensile strength, low shrinkage and workability characteristics. Heavy duty geopolymer concrete, 435 mm thick, used for the turning node, apron and taxiway aircraft pavements, welcomes a heavy 747 cargo for regular air traffic between Toowoomba-Wellcamp BWWA airport and Hong Kong..(See the video on my visit to the Toowoomba-Wellcamp-Airport).   Lire la suite... / Read more...

Geopolymer Revolution on the Move

I am happy to see how Geopolymer science, which I founded 33 years ago, is generating applications and innovations dedicated to the general public. BASF, the world Chemical Company is strongly promoting geopolymer technology. In an older post posted in the Geopolymer Institute on 24 March, 2011, we introduced the geopolymer grout PCI-GEOFUG (go to BASF). Meanwhile, the company presents it at various international fairs and expositions, starting from Germany over UK, and presently in Paris, at BATIMAT (8 Nov., 2011). It is interesting to follow the arguments outlined in the company technical brochures dedicated to this geopolymer grout GEOFUG.The French text is enthusiastic. On one page (it is page 2) one sees 3 women raising both arms above their head with placards that read, translated from French:   Lire la suite... / Read more...
