Energies, Vol. 12, Pages 2346: Carbon Dioxide Absorption by Blast-Furnace Slag Mortars in Function of the Curing Intensity (Energies)

Climate change is one of the most important issues affecting the future of the planet. Then, a lot of resources are being used to actively work on climate change issues and greenhouse gas reduction. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are monitored by each country and reported yearly to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published the document entitled “2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories” to provide the calculation rules and the way to inform the UNFCCC of the national GHG emissions. Currently, this document does not give a procedure to calculate the net carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere due to the Portland cement clinker production. The purpose of this paper is to get reliable relationships to better calculate the CO2 uptake by ground granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBFS) mortars. The application of this material cured under controlled conditions could help minimize environmental impact. Carbonation coefficient versus 28-day compressive strength relationship of mortars elaborated with GGBFS and cured underwater for 0, 1, 3, 7, 14, or 28 days were obtained. The main finding is the extreme sensitivity of the GGBFS mortars to the curing intensity and, therefore, they can be used cured under controlled conditions to minimize carbon footprints.
