Understanding Cement-Superplasticiser Interactions in Blended Portland Cement Wasteforms

In the UK, over 150,000m3 of radioactive waste (enough to fill 60 Olympic size swimming pools) has been produced to date. Most of this radioactive waste needs conditioning, by either encapsulating it in cement, or another method, to prevent release to the biosphere. Read more

Developing novel iron-rich cement

The cement and steel sectors are foundational to the UK and are essential to construct our infrastructure. Cement is the most manufactured commodity worldwide and due to the large demand and urbanisation, the industry is extremely resource and carbon intensive. Read more

Algal Bioplastics

Single use plastic is a major environmental concern that is urgently in need of innovative solutions. Microalgae are photosynthetic organisms that can be employed to develop processes that are environmentally sustainable. Read more

Understanding the hydration of ferrite in Portland cement

To increase resource use efficiency in the UK cement industry, the formulation of Portland cement clinker will need to include a higher amount of ferrite minerals, but the fundamental understanding of hydration (reaction with water) of those minerals are still lacking. Read more

Learning from historical cement sample stores

The Cements@Sheffield group in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Sheffield, is recruiting a PhD student to join us for a project funded by the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. Read more
