A Review of Ground Sediment and Calcium Carbide Residue as Primary Materials for Geopolymer
Keywords:Geopolymer, Ground Sediment, Calcium Carbide Residue, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Silicate
Sustainability is an important issue in the manufacture of construction materials. There is an increasing demand to produced construction materials by using abundant waste products and low energy consuming production methods. This paper is an overview of new geopolymer synthesized by the combination of two aluminosilicate materials, Ground Sediment (GS) and Calcium Carbide Residue (CCR) activated by Sodium Hydroxide and Sodium Silicate. Based on the comprehensive review, several important conclusions were made and further research were identified. In this review, the collected evidence prepares for further investigation of GS-CCR based geopolymer focusing on the parameters and testing method by referring to previous research using various types of aluminosilicate materials.
