The project’s main aim is to research and define new conditioning and functionalization treatments for landfill fly ash for its posterior use in water decontamination as well as the formulation of enhanced-performance mortars.
CTV plans to synthesize zeolites and geopolymers for the removal of heavy metals from water; to establish fly ash functionalization techniques in order to recover cenospheres and to consequently elaborate a high-performance mortar in terms of thermal by means of the above-mentioned cenospheres. CTV will also determine rare earth elements present in fly ash in order to assess techniques for the recovery of these essential raw materials.
