The Solution for Fly-Ash-ONLY Building Materials

About


Acrete provides a novel and practical method to apply fly ash as an economical,high strength and water-­‐resistant construction material.


Acrete can be adapted to almost any construction requirement that calls for the use of cement/concrete bricks, tiles, shotcrete/gunite, road pavement and railway sleepers –by varying the concentrationof the alkali mix.


Advantages


General

Environmental

Technological

Acrete is a novel and practical solution to recycle fly ash as an economical, high strength and water-­‐resistant construction material. Compared to other available methods of geopolymerization using fly ash, Acrete has been able to successfully simplify and optimize the transformation process (e.g. the alkaline reactive materialandcuringtemperature).


  • Acrete’s building material is a very environmentally-­‐friendly substitute for Portland cement; the production of Portland cement involves energy-­‐intensive activities
  • Reduces the environmental and health impact of fly ash 
  • Solves fly ash disposal issue
  • Recycles huge quantities of industrial waste products 
  • High acid resistant material


  • Simple and convenient process
  • Involves few chemical additives
  • High strength; test results show that the compressive strength can reach to70-­‐ 120 Mpa
  • No special technical requirements
  • Low water absorption
  • High durability
  • Short curing time

What is Fly Ash?


Production

Composition

Fly ash is a contaminant residue produced by coal and steam generating plants. Several hundred million tons are produced per year world widely.

Generally consists of Si, Al, Fe. and Ca. Contains trace amounts of heavy metals, such as arsenic and selenium.

Problems

Biproduct Applications

  • Classified as industrial solid waste
  • Needs impoundment
  • Ground water contamination
  • Spills of bulk storage

  • Additive in concrete making industry
  • Autoclave fly ash bricks
