Presentation of PhD work

Cement, as the most widely used man-made material, has the industrial characteristics with high pollution and high energy consumption, leads to the release of significant amounts of CO2, and sustainable construction via the innovation of CO2 sequestration technologies has been gaining increased attention in recent decades, especially in light of emerging initiatives regarding CO2 emission. Non-hydraulic minerals rich in silicon, calcium are more conducive to sequestering CO2, which will harden rapidly after being exposed to high concentration of CO2, forming thermodynamically stable carbonate materials. In order to further solve the environmental problems related to carbon dioxide in the development of the cement industry, she will try to synthesize low-lime(g-C2S、C3S2) green cement from industrial waste residues, and use mineral carbonization to store part of CO2. It is not only reduces the cement production cost and natural energy consumption, but also greatly reduces the CO2 emissions, improves the recycling rate of waste residues, and promotes the sustainable development of cement industry.
