Research activities

Scientific school is a world leader in alkali-activated materials research and product development. Research activities cover:
“Regularities of advanced alkali-activated cementitious materials development which would be similar to natural zeolite-like minerals and determine their durability for the use in both civil engineering (mortars, concretes, composites etc.) and non-civil engineering applications (ship-, machine- manufacturing, metallurgy (adhesives, glues, bonds, etc.), mining industry, immobilization of toxic and radioactive wastes within final products for their long-term safety disposal”.

Research work that can be performed on request of third-party organizations

  • to reveal regularities under which properties of mineral systems of alkaline and alkaline– alkaline earth aluminosilicate composition change;
  • development of advanced cementitious materials and binders that are alternatives to Portland cement, as well as materials of hydration and contact hardening on their basis and ceramic materials using a wide range of natural materials and industrial by-products and wastes;
  • the development of alkali-activated cementitious materials, inclusive of adhesives, glues, with a wide range of special properties (high strength and strength gain, corrosion resistance, fire resistance, heat resistance, acid resistance, high density) intended for the use in civil engineering and non-civil engineering applications, mining etc.
