ReActiv: Industrial Residue Activation for Sustainable Cement Production

The ReActiv project will create a novel sustainable symbiotic value chain, linking the by-product of the alumina production industry and the cement production industry.

low CO2 footprint & reduced wastes

The new ReActiv technologies will modify the properties of Bauxite Residue, transforming into a reactive material suitable for new, low CO2 footprint, cement products. In this manner ReActiv proposes a win-win scenario for both industrial sectors; reducing wastes and CO2 emissions respectively.
