Sadowski L., 2022, Environmentally Friendly Concrete for Sustainable Overlays with Waste Mineral Powders: Problem Statement, Literature Survey, Economic Potential and Research Gaps, Chemical Engineering Transactions, 94, 595-600.
Nowadays, the challenge for floor technology is to reduce the amount of cement necessary for the manufacturing of the overlays. It can be achieved thanks to waste mineral powders sourced from aggregate quarries. The chemical composition as well as particle size characteristics make this by-product of mining industry an attractive additive to be used in durable and sustainable cement-based matrices. Therefore, this article discusses the possibility to incorporate waste mineral powders as functional additives into sustainable and environmental-friendly overlays. For this purpose, short literature survey has been performed together with specified research gaps. The analysis presented in the article shows good perspectives and high economic potential of environmentally friendly concrete for the manufacturing of sustainable overlays with waste mineral powders.
