Research group description
Currently one of our main research subjects is the potential of magnesium as a substitute for cement and a remover of CO2. Magnesium could offer a good alternative for CO2-intensive calcium in many applications, such as cement, but the lack of knowledge about the phenomenon and both theoretical and practical research stand in the way of the utilisation of magnesium.
