Heath, A., Paine, K., Goodhew, S., Ramage, M. and Lawrence, M., 2013. The potential for using geopolymer concrete in the UK. Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers: Construction Materials, 166 (4), pp. 195-203.
Geopolymers are a novel class of inorganic polymers, which have the potential to replace Portland cement in a number of different applications. Geopolymers can utilise a higher level of industrial by-products than Portland cement blends and numerous studies have concluded geopolymer concretes have significantly lower embodied carbon dioxide than Portland-cement-based concretes. This paper examines the potential for the use of geopolymer binders as a Portland cement replacement in the UK. The quantities of material required, the major sources of these materials, the environmental implications and the barriers to implementation are discussed.
