Calcium silicates synthesised from industrial residues with the ability for CO2 sequestration [Article]
(SAGE Publications Ltd, 2014)
This work explored several synthesis routes to obtain calcium silicates from different calcium-rich and silica-rich industrial residues. Larnite, wollastonite and calcium silicate chloride were successfully synthesised ...
Fractionation and fluxes of metals and radionuclides during the recycling process of phosphogypsum wastes applied to mineral CO2 sequestration [Article]
The industry of phosphoric acid produces a calcium-rich by-product known as phosphogypsum, which is usually stored in large stacks of millions of tons. Up to now, no commercial application has been widely implemented for ...
Technological proposals for recycling industrial wastes for environmental applications [Article]
A two-fold objective is proposed for this research: removing hazardous and unpleasant wastes and mitigating the emissions of green house gasses in the atmosphere. Thus, the first aim of this work is to identify, characterize ...
Recent insights into xerogel and aerogel mineral composites for CO 2 mineral sequestration [Article]
(Springer Nature, 2011)
Supercritically dried composites have already been analysed and proposed as carbon dioxide sequesters. However, the economical and energetic costs of the supercritical drying process had to be re-evaluated, and were ...
