Evaluation of alkali-activated binders suitability for the stabilization/solidification of tunnel boring muds
May 27-June 1, 2018
In Europe, two major civil engineering projects, the “Grand Paris” automatic metro lines and the “Lyon-Turin” high speed railway tunnel, brought forth for the construction industry an unprecedented prerequisite within schemes of this scale: the necessity to recycle all forms of waste that comes out of the excavation process. By 2030, up to 100 million tons of muds retrieved from the boring operations, likely contaminated with sulphate and heavy metals, will have to be dealt with.
