Article: Slim slabs

The Cobiax Technologies GmbH of Darmstadt has developed components that make reinforced concrete slabs up to 35% lighter. The principle of the Cobiax flat slab is to leave out as much concrete as possible whilst maintaining the full flexural...

Article: Strip casting technology

Strip casting allows the casting of new, high-manganese steels, by achieving energy and carbon dioxide savings in comparison to conventional technologies. Due to the low casting thickness, it is possible to save up to 75 percent during casting,...

Article: "Green cement", a new type of hydraulic binder.

A new group of hydraulic binding agents, named Celitement, seems to be a promising improvement of the energy and environmental balances in the cement production. Celitement is based on hydraulically active calcium hydrosilicates, which needs less...
