Waste to Wealth (W2W): A total solution for municipal solid waste incinerated ash in geopolymer concrete

Project description

A concrete solution for municipal waste

Municipalities across Europe and around the world face a growing challenge when it comes to waste management. The big question is how to convert municipal solid waste (MSW) into useful renewable energy. The EU-funded W2W project has a solution. It proposes the use of MSW incineration (MSWI) products as secondary raw materials in geopolymer concrete. Specifically, the main goal is to optimise the treatment method of MSWI bottom ash with advanced technology and manufacture the artificial aggregate as a secondary raw material in geopolymer concrete application. The project, which will provide training on the treatment technique, will also study the life cycle of the products.
