Abstract:
The built environment offers significant opportunities for improving sustainability. TecEco Pty. Ltd. (TecEco, www.tececo.com) was incorporated to take up this challenge and have developed a new cement material based on the blending of reactive magnesia with other hydraulic cements including Portland cement that has attracted considerable interest around the world1. TecEco have demonstrated that reactive magnesia can be blended with other hydraulic cements such as Portland cement and usually a pozzolan in virtually any proportion and result in concretes that are theoretically more durable and in the case of porous materials such as bricks, blocks, pavers and mortars, that carbonate and therefore sequester CO2. This paper summarises the recently invented TecEco cements and their basic chemistry.
