Development of sustainable green concrete containing lithium refinery by-product

Project Description

This project aims to investigate the potential use of lithium refinery residue as a partial replacement for cement in concrete.

This project expects to generate new knowledge in the area of green concrete through fundamental investigation of its properties and to incorporate this residue as a new supplementary cementitious material in existing Australian standard. The expected outcomes of the project include characterisation and benchmarking of lithium residue as an alternative supplementary cementitious material in concrete. This will provide significant environmental benefits in both a reduction in lithium waste and reduction of CO2 emission of cement in high performance green concrete.
